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

It lasted a couple of minutes too…
Checking for reports but the web site is overloaded…

Hmm… It was only a magnitude 4.9 (4 out of 7 on the Japanese scale).
The epicenter was closer to here than usual. I guess that’s why I felt it so strongly in my house.

This makes 1,618 earthquakes of magnitude 4 or greater since 3/11. But the frequency has gone down greatly. For example, over the last 7 days so far there have been just 1, 2, 1, 4, 3, 1 and 1 earthquakes each day.

    Mother Nature loves Japan. That’s why she blesses it with so much extra attention.doug
