The sea in front of my house is still serene as always. It’s inland sea/Setonaikai between the main Japanese island and the Shikoku island. So the most of the wave from the Pacific ocean will be blocked by the Shikoku island. My town Akashi city is in Hyogo, so this time it looks safe, though it has the adversary. Some of the area along the Setonai kai around Okayama prefecture has the warning not the adversary because the wave from Kyushu side hit against the another wave from Osaka side. So people living there must be careful. The most highest warning is reported along the seaside of Aomori, Iwate and Miyagi prefectres.(the Red zone in the picture below) In these area, Tsunami height is estimated to be TREE meters or more!! Incredible! The wave from the opposite side of the earth can be so high!?
Tsunami can be warned… but the earthquake.. I’m so sorry for the catastrophic damage in Chile..it is not reported clearly yet in Japan. Thank you for my friends worried about me and my family. I hope another harm never happens any more to the people in Chile.
The newest Tsunami report from the Japan Meteorological Agency is here.
