Earthquake Strike Okinawa, Japan

Okinawa was hit by  a 7.0 magnitude earthquake.

It happened at 5:31 am (3:31pm Friday ET) early Saturday.

ET means USA’s Eastern Time.

Japan’s Meteorological Agency issued a tsunami advisory to the people in the Okinawa Islands, Amami Islands and Tokara Islands.

They should avoid the beaches and the sea.

Tsunami is giant waves.

The quake was centered about 6 miles (10km) deep and about 53 miles (85km) from Okinawa.

So far CNN said they haven’t received any news about the damage or casualty on the islands.

Anyway, I guess the aftermath will not be as bad as in the Haiti’s earthquake.

On 12 January 2010 Haiti was hit by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that almost destroyed Port-au-Prince and killed hundreds thousands of people.

Earthquake is a natural disaster.

I think we must avoid earthquake.

Aftermath of Earthquake in Haiti.

The 7.0 earthquake destroyed lots and lots of buildings in Port-au-Prince.

There is no electricity and water in the city.

People sleep outside; in the parks, by the streets or just outside their houses.

Thousands and thousands of people died in the earthquake.

People cannot find their family members.

They must be very, very, very sad.

The President’s residence is destroyed.


Dead bodies are by the streets.

Bodies lie covered on the side of the road in Port-au-Prince

People cannot clean themselves because there is no water.

People can get sick if they don’t wash their hands or drink dirty water.

More people could die.

Children may be lost.

They can’t go school and their books were destroyed.

It is a big disaster.

CNN said it is a catastrophe of major proportions.

I pray that there won’t be too much major earthquake in Haiti.
