Hi, Steve here from Izumi in Sendai. About ten days ago we had a pretty strong earthquake up here in Miyagi and I wate as you all know. I was quite shaken by this one!! Earthquakes are pretty scary ! We don’t have earthquakes in England so I’m not used to them at all. We were lucky that the epicentre was in the country side and not near a big city. I was amazed by the TV images of collapsed roads and sunken mountains. That’s one ‘interesting’ thing about living in Japan. Along with typhoons!! I hope that there isn’t another earthquake for a long time. I also hope I haven’t tempted fate by saying that! See ya, /Sendai Study Advisor Stephen
