A big earthquake

It was sudden and the earth shook greatly. I was in the fourth floor of the building in Yokohama then. I experienced an earthquake sometimes till now. However, this big earthquake surprised me. It was difficult for me to have already stood.

The big rolling continued very for a long time. Fortunately, my workplace did not have the damage. However, the continuation of the work became impossible for suspension of water supply and a blackout at the same time.

The damage of this earthquake is serious in the North Japan that is near to the seismic center. All the trains were stopped in a metropolitan area. Therefore, a lot of citizens were not able to escape including me from the city. The police did not admit the service of the train until the middle of the night. It’s unskillful measures. An enormous citizen became city refugees

The water? The food? The return means? The Yokohama authorities appointed a criticism place. However, the place was cold, and one piece of blanket seemed to be given. I didn’t look to such a thing.

Many people waited for the service reopening of the train like me. And, in the middle of the night, the service of the train was reopened slowly. And, in the middle of the night, the service of the train was reopened slowly. I arrived at my home safely at last.

My house was flawless. And I’m shocked close against information of the big damage in the epicenter.
