Earthquake in Miyagi Prefecture

A powerful 7.2-magnitude earthquake hit Miyagi prefecture in Japan at around 11:45 AM yesterday (3/9/2011). Then again, 4-magnitude afterquake hit this morning at around 6:24 AM. Fortunately, no big damage is reported.

Tokyo was away from the earthquake center, so some people didn't feel the earthquake, and so did I... but thanks for those who cared!!!

Nonetheless, Tokyo is said to have 7-magnitude earthquake within 30 years (2007~2036), in a quite high rate of 70 percent! How scary...

If you remember my post in 2008, I keep my bousaizukin at work. LoL Bousaizukin is a hat that guards your head from fire and other dangerous things. I don't know whether this product is known overseas or not but we learn how to use it at schools. BTW, no one around me keeps it at work... kind of embarrassing but I don't care. haha

Needless to say, I am worried about our new home, but our life is very important! Be prepared and have no regrets ;)

  1. ah my friend who lives in Miyagi experienced this earthquake yesterday! i'm glad she is safe!

    btw i have seen the bousaizukin in a Japanese 100 yen store in Melbourne, but i don't think it will be great in sales here...

    glad you are safe too!

  2. Wow.. this is the first time I see a bousaizukin! I never knew they have such things - Japan is always prepared for earthquakes (esp your buildings requirements). Hopefully people in NZ will follow your technology in building earthquake-safe buildings. I think it is a good idea for you to keep that bousaizukin at home & at work, never hurt to be prepared.

  3. Wow that hat sure looks useful! I think I would have one with me at work and at my home too! You never know right!? and we will see who is laughing when other ppl have their hair caught on fire <--- in a joking way pls, not serious ><

  4. hi all!!!

    I am wearing my "bousaizukin" without the least shame!!!!!!!

    It's still shaking. I wonder when it stops...
