oh em gee

You may have heard that a huge earthquake hit Osaka and the surrounding areas.

Apparently it was a 6, strong enough that you probably wouldn't be able to stand...eep!

The area where we used to live, Minoo, was in that 6 range as well as Takatsuki where we lived pre-blog.

My friend, Hiromi who lives in Ikeda, said that it was so scary.

I can't imagine what it was like.

Luckily, MIL was okay and everyone I messaged said they were okay too.

So many volcanoes on the "Ring of Fire" erupting and shaking these days.

Stay safe and be well everyone.

Been trying to find a lot of info about this earthquake since my trip to Osaka is late September. I think in a month should tell for sure, but seems like most places in Osaka are ok. Really sad to hear that your former residence(s) was among the hardest hit and heard water suppply was affected. Glad to hear your friends and family are doing ok.
Take care!

I immediately thought of you and Satoshi's family when I saw this. Glad things are fine so far and hope the aftershocks aren't too bad.

so scary Jalna!

most that I contacted were okay K, thank you!

I heard most were without power and water V, should be back to normal by September.

Thanks Kirk, hoping the aftershocks won't last long and there be too many.

Take care everyone.
