Niigata Earthquake

July 16th, 2007 by Chris

Niigata was hit by a big earthquake a couple hours ago.  I felt it sitting here at the computer, a slow swaying motion that went on for quite awhile and reminded me of being on a boat.  I just wanted to write this quick post to say everything’s all right up here.

    Ditto. When I read “earthquake in ‘north-west’ Japan” I was worried… But then I Google-mapped it, and it looked pretty far away.

    Still… Has Nosiro been subject to anything like this?

    Thanks for the post. I just heard about the earthquake on the radio and went running to our atlas to find Kashiwazaki. It’s a long way from where you live, but it’s still a very big earthquake. Glad to hear everything’s okay.
