More earthquakes/И снова землетрясения

It has been very quiet there for the last couple of weeks for Northern Japan, but the nature reminded of itself again at 4:30 am this morning with a 6.3 magnitude earthquake. Then there was another one at 6:14, then again at 6:42, then at 7:44, then it quieted down until 4:39 pm. And these were just the earthquakes, who knows how many aftershocks there were. No power outages though, so it's ok.

За последние несколько северная Япония успела чуть-чуть подотвыкнуть от землетрясений, но сегодня в половину пятого утра природа напомнила о себе землетрясением величиной в 6,3 балла. Затем снова тряхнуло в 6:14 утра, затем опять в 6:42, потом еще одно в 7:44. Потом было еще одно землетрясение в 4:39 вечера. И это только основные землетрясения, а еще было неизвестно сколько отголосков. Свет не отключали, да и ладно.

  2. We are fine, thank you! I guess everyone got used to them somewhat already. Japan is still shaking every once in a while, but these were strong and so many happened at one day so I thought I'd post it.
