Too much there is to update V does not add – This day began with a lot of stress, and although the heavy, for me but for now the only correct decision: My wife, her sister and her mother to say in the morning, that they should pack up the kids and head south. Difficult in terms of risky: You will certainly be good for a few days without me, because they are not alone and with relatives, but difficult in the sense of “what happens, when suddenly hundreds of thousands have the same idea and want to ship her family.

The quake seemed to be very close to the surface.
I think, ranging in terms of updates today. The quake started, to gnaw at the nerves. The fact, that the main Honshu quake quite a few meters (I have read 4 m) has moved, has no doubt left in the ground voltages, Remove the now gradually).
More likely tomorrow after a – I hope – relatively quiet night.
