About 2 weeks ago, an earthquake came around my area. It wasn’t a big one but I feel scared. 2 days ago, another earthquake came in Kumamoto, Kyushu. It was unexpectedly a big one. I feel like islands of Japan is going to be sunk now.
5 years ago, Japan had the Great East Japan Earthquake . It was a horrible nightmare. Tsunami washed all away. It was a plate type earthquake. Japan has four submarine plates and Japan is standing the plates. The system was a submarine palate moved, ground was also dragged and it brought Tsunami.
This time, Inland earthquake. Active fault under the ground moved and submarine plate wasn’t relavent. So, Tsunami didn’t come, but aftershock has been coming over 100 time and Mt. Aso has erupted. So type was different compared to 5 years ago. Many people are evacuated and shelter and ration aren’t good enough. 5 years ago, people said “Pray for Japan ” but this time, “Praying for Kumamoto doesn’t help. Please #SupportKumamoto” . People learned a lots from 5 years ago. People prepare emergency food and family decide where they meet at the emergency. I handed in my personal information to my company for the situation. No longer someone’s problem. I try to support Kumamoto, too.
