    I hope it doesn't turn out to be as bad and devastating as last year.

    The company that owns the power plant made a statement saying nothing was affected which is good news. They've also alerted the public to get to high ground so that's another good step in being safe than sorry and alerting the public to do something. Judging by the broadcasts it's nowhere near as a bad as last time. Hopefully they'll be no casualties

    Barely felt it.

    Everything is running normally in Tokyo, just a few delayed trains.

    A note from some friends further north say that nerves are rattled but everyone settled down once the tsunami alerts had passed.

    What I felt was a rumble that lasted for about a minute but didn't shake like a strong quake normally would. I'm on my home and I bet some of my dishes on the sink broke. (based on how I left them this morning)
