Keeping my eyes on Japan this first day of 2024 as the Sea of Japan coast reels in the aftermath of a M7.6 quake. After living there so long, I already know the preparedness and strict building codes there and personally dealt with the larger M9.0 East Japan Quake in 2011.
Perhaps because I do know how it feels, images like these get my PTSD going a bit.
Everyone I know is safe but anyone living in the area should heed all warnings given.
Mother nature is not to be trifled with!
