On Friday afternoon, big earthquake had occured.
I worked at office at Osaka. At first, next branch's team used TV conference to Tokyo office and tokyo team said earthquake had occured, and a few seconds later, we felt earthquake.
Our office is at 11th floor and swing was very big so we felt very awful if our building was collapsed. It was about 2:30 PM.
Afterthat, we switched our TV on and saw what happend in Japan, so our work had almost stopped afterthat.
(safely, my house in Osaka and my parents and brother and sister's house in Shizuoka-pref. was safe)
Magnitude 8.8 was very huge. Newspapers said it is the biggest magnitude earthquke in japan since authority had a record.
Our hometown shizuoka was said to be occurd big earthquake since I was a child 30-40 years ago, so we had many training since i was a junior school, so at first I thought that earthquake at shizuoka had finally happend !
This eqrthquke had happend at touhoku-region so maybe many japanese thinked why, maybe this region is not so known for earthquke compared with other region.
After that, almost all of TV and newspapers had occupied by earthquake's news.
Of course, the damage of earthquake and tsunami was huge, but the fear of nuclear facilities damage in fukushima-pref. was serious.
