Just now, a magnitude 7.3 earthquake just hit the East coast of Japan which shook half of the island. My house in Tokyo shook for a very long time spilling drinks.
Currently there is a tsunami alert in the Miyagi region - same area from the 2011.03 earthquake. Folks are being evacuated to high ground.

Mobile networks are jammed.

Tokyo seems fine but not a lot of info from up North. Will update you as I have more info.

Twitter account @earthquakejapan predicted this quake 5 hours ago but there was no such warning in Japan.

@earthquake_jp also has more info.

Updates go to my Twitter first.
