Another massive one. Half of Japan got rattled. I hope that nobody got injured.

Disillusioned, you should go to bed a bit earlier. Not getting enough sleep is not healthy.

Woke me up. One of those weird, am I dreaming or shaking moments that are too common since 3/11.

Felt it rolled over and went back to sleep.

After nearly 15yrs here it needs to be a strong one(my location) to get me to move. 3/11 threw a few things of my walls and shelfs.

No tsunami watch was immediately issued

I would think any tsunami watch or warning would have to be immediate to do any good!

Yeah, that woke me up too. I remember reading somewhere back in March that we can expect a big one again within a year. Let's hope not.

I seemed to be the only one at work today who was actually awoken by this quake. I was starting to think That I'd dreamt it! Reading that it was a 5+ and I didn't even check the TV, makes me feel that we are all becoming too accustomed to these frequent aftershocks and that the next big one will catch us all off guard.

Another rude awakening here in southern Iwate.
