Earthquake! February 26, 2010

At about 5:30 this morning we woke up to our beds shaking like crazy and our hotel swaying. According to this website, the epicenter of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake was about 50 miles off the coast of where we’re staying now, in the capital city of Naha.

Even though we’re Northern California kids, this was the strongest and longest earthquake we’ve ever experienced. As Jojo ran down 10 flights of stairs, I fell back asleep. No damage done near us except for maybe some of our moms’ pottery projects and the air conditioning next door.

So we survived our first Japanese natural disaster. Now we wait for Gojira.

I’ll bet you won’t go back to sleep if you hear the call of Gojira.

I don’t just fall asleep after big earthquakes, I sleep through them. Yay for Southern California building codes!
