Shaken But Standing - Japan

 

Still experiencing some aftershocks every now and then.

 

Yesterday, an 8.9 magnitude earthquake hit the northeastern part of Japan.

Although I consider the buildings in Japan to be relatively safer than the ones back home, there was another problem that these advanced buildings weren't able to handle.

The Tsunami.

Hopefully, not a lot of lives will be loost during this sad and tragic incident.

Me and my friends experienced no harm, thank God.

To all those who were worried and concerned, I deeply appreciate it.

Let us pray for everybody's safety.

I took this shot from the tallest observatory in Japan.

Good thing this disaster didn't happen on that day.

 

I work very near the Landmark tower and I could literally see the building swaying...

Good thing this place still looks the way it looks here after that crazy earthquake.
