Moderate earthquake jolts Japan’s Chiba region
I felt this one! For whatever reason I had awoken Sunday morning early. At 7:17 am the room started to shake/move. Felt like VERY strong winds outside. After about 10 seconds it – the earthquake – subsided. Here is the news report:
TOKYO, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) — A 4.8-magnitude earthquake jolted Japan’s Chiba region at 7:17 a.m. Sunday, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. The epicenter of the tremor was some 80 km underground in northwest Chiba Prefecture bordering Tokyo. Obvious shocks were felt in most buildings in Tokyo and its vicinity. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage. And no Tsunami warning was issued.
