Cellphone video from South Sanriku Town captures an entire town reduced to rubble in 5 minutes. via YouTube.
Just over one month ago, we had a magnitude 9.0 earthquake strike off the coast of Northeastern Japan. Today, as if to say “never forget”, we had a major M7.1 aftershock hit south and west of that area. Shaking was well-felt here; but due to technology, everyone knew it was coming… So again, I’m gonna recommend these apps for your smartphone.
iPhone users, get Yurekuru.
Android users, get Namazu.
Just knowing i have a 10~60 second window on an incoming shaker is enough to let me sleep at night.
And while I don’t live close enough to the sea to worry about a tsunami, Just seeing this scares the living $#!+ outta me. I saw with my own eyes the destruction of Hurricane Katrina, but this tops all that.
