Another Quake in Japan, This Time Near Mt. Fuji

There was just another mildly strong (mag 6.4) quake in Japan, but this time in Fujinomia Shizuoka, near Mt. Fuji. This is much closer to Kyoto than the ones on Friday, but still far enough that I didn't feel it, though Fumie did (which is odd, because having been in two major quakes in my life — Loma Prieta in '89, and Kobe in '95 — I tend to be quite sensitive and often feel even very mild quakes).

This one occurred inland, so they say, a least, no danger of tsunami this time.

Also, initial reports indicate little damage, which bodes well...

I hope you and your family are well, Jeffrey. My heart goes out to the victims of the tragedies of late, and I hope that you all remain safe in the coming months.

So glad to hear that you, Fumie and Anthony are OK. Can’t believe he is 8. I remember when he was just learning to walk. The news from Japan is devastating. . . so very sad. But we are also hearing how the people are so kind and uncomplaining. They wait in line for water, food, gas, etc. for hours and hours. We’ll have to plan a west coast get-together sometime soon. Let us know when you are close by. Love you all
