    Exclamation M5 earthquake rocks Tokyo

    A relatively strong tremor has hit Tokyo today (23rd), forcing the trains and metro to stop for a few hours. As a result, the streets of Tokyo experience an unusual congestion, both in cars and pedestrians.

    There are no serious damages and nobody was killed. 27 persons were injured.

    Yes I'm certainly glad that there was no one, seriously harmed.

    I am really surprised that this hasn't been more discussed. I'd be interested in hearing from members' personal stories on where they were, what did they do, etc. during the quake if they happened to be in Tokyo and experienced the quake.
