This morning at about 5:07 am,there was a big earthquake in japan.It happened in shizuoka prefecture which is very near to my area.The meteorological agency said it is about magnitude 6.5 quake.

I was just about to get up from my bed when my alarm clock rang..at 5 am..
Then as I was about to clear up my bed..my whole house started to shake..and we all felt the tremor..all my kids started to wakeup and ran downstairs.
As I was still in a haze and enjoying the tremor,I think..I stood still in my room until the tremor stops..In my area ,we have a magnitude 4 quake..

At present there are 18 people injured but no death..thank god..but many roads and highways collapse..and also many houses too..
