Is a must to share this, last Friday (Jan.15, 2016) I attended in the school of my son on how to make and prepare when there is an earthquake. Especially if they are our in the school building and on the road. Last week Hokkaido, Japan experience the moved off the ground at 6.7 magnitudes.
TOKYO: A 6.7-magnitude earthquake struck off Japan’s Hokkaido on Thursday (Jan 14), according to the United States Geological Survey.
No tsunami warning was issued by authorities for the quake which struck 51km southeast of Shizunai.
The quake hit at 12.25pm (11.25am, Singapore time) off the southern coast of the island, at a location about 750km north of Tokyo, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. The quake was measured at a depth of 50km, it added.
No damage or injuries were immediately reported though heavy shaking was captured on camera footage shown on public broadcaster NHK. Japan sits at the junction of four tectonic plates and experiences around 20 per cent of the world’s most powerful earthquakes.
But rigid building codes and strict enforcement mean even powerful tremors frequently do little damage. On Tuesday, a strong 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck off Hokkaido.
A massive undersea quake that hit in March 2011 sent a tsunami barrelling into Japan’s northeast coast, killing more than 15,000 people and sending three reactors into meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear plant.
All parents watched the video below how the kids (students) prepare their self in case earthquake occur.
The Japanese really care the safety of the kids as usual be alert in every calamity. They really have this time to make seriously pay attention to this event. This is very interesting, ’cause in the Philippines we had earthquake, typhoons, tsunami.. We don’t have any idea what to do and we end up panicking, right? Oh, this is the way I love Japan. Safe and very advanced (esp. Technology).
