Another earthquake!! Stop it!

I will eventually get back to you on the magnitude, but it was scary enough. Could somebody tell me why I am working on the fifteenth floor of an all glass building!

There was a lot of shaking...in fact, it still feels like it three minutes later, which could be...
* something like that sea-sicky feeling you get when you first walk on land after being on a boat
* the building's way of handling a quake by re-distributing the energy
* aftershocks

If it is the latter, we are all probably massively screwed. There was definitely an earthquake on Sunday, and I thought there was one Monday night. Now this one. Time for a business trip!

UPDATE: Most of the press reports calling it a 6.2-magnitude quake, but not centered in Tokyo. No injuries, everything is working fine. (except my head...I still feel like the building is shaking! I better lay off the sauce). This article seems to have the most information!
