For those who sent me messages concerning my family and me, I really appreciate it. As the title says, my family members (including our cats) and I are ALL FINE. FORTUNATELY my city is located inland Japan. It's quite far away from both sea sides.
Up to now, there are no Utsunomiyan fatalities (people in Utsunomiya). When considering what this earthquake with a historic magnitute of 8.8 has caused in Tohoku region, I have to admit that our area have had very little damage. Our life lines- water, electricity, gas, and internet connection- are all fine, although aftershocks keep coming up every 5 to 10 minutes (which make us nervous).
The photo shown above is the one I took at my parents home. One big window fell apart, plenty of glass cups and dishes were crushed, and the Japanese dolls were dancing like crazy...
Again, thanks for worrying about us and I hope that things will get back to normal soon.
