Doug Lerner reports from Tokyo and St. Louis, and points beyond…

I sure felt that one. It was an inland quake lasting about a minute. On the Richter scale it was 5.5. On the Japanese scale it was 5 out of 7.

    Well, the earthquakes definitely have slowed down. Some days there are none over magnitude 4. But aftershocks could continue for up to 10 years they say. After all, the 3/11 quake was magnitude 9. I’m not sure if yesterday’s was really an aftershock though, because the epicenter was so different. doug
