Youtube footage of the Japanese earthquake

I found these videos from Youtube over the weekend, giving you an idea of what it was like when the earthquake struck Japan on Friday.

Take a look - it's very scary.

This is the biggest earthquake in Japan's history. 8.9 magnitude - one of the biggest recorded in history.

The videos come from Tokyo which is around 230 miles from the earthquake’s epicenter.

My cousin lives in Japan with his Japanese wife and young daughter in Tokyo/Kanagawa. Through the power of Facebook, he's been able to let all the family know that he and his family are fine.

He said things weren't too bad in Tokyo, but cars and buildings were shaking. Japan experiences earthquakes and tremors all the time, but my cousin said this was by far the worst he's ever experienced.
