I know it is still tough for them down there.
This link gives good info about “shindo” (the measurement in Japan for seismic intensity level.) I was mistaken in a previous post when I said that “shindo” and magnitude are the same. They are not. I asked my husband and he said magnitude is how much energy is released, and shindo is how much shaking there is. So the magnitude (energy released) might be a high number, but if you live far from the epicenter, the shindo in your area will be a low number.
Please read the link if you live in Japan. It’s informative.
