I don't know where you're at, but it hasn't calmed down at all here in south Iwate. We had a fair shake at 5 this morning that bounced me right out of bed and the 6.3 on Friday had me and the mrs in the street real quick. I haven't had a good nights sleep since March, and nobody here in coastal Tohoku has either. Everyone I know has 'jisshin yoi' including me. The one this article is describing was easily felt all the way up here past Sendai. For the best real time earthquake data for your location in Japan check out

The yurekuru app for iphone gives an early warning of quakes. Free and good. Tohoku and ibragi have been buzzing all night. Hope everyone stays safe.
