‘The ground was shaking’

Trinidad and Tobago's Newsday "FORMER Sunday Newsday columnist, Shivonne Du Barry, was among persons left shaken after a magnitude 6.1 earthquake hit eastern Japan yesterday following last Friday’s magnitude 8.9 tremor and ensuing tsunami which devastated large sections of that country.

Yesterday’s 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck at 10.31 pm (TT time) 26 miles north-east of Shizuoka, according to the US Geological Survey, as reported in Bloomberg News. Du Barry, who lives at Fuji-shi in the Shizuoka prefecture (state) emailed Newsday to say she was okay despite the trauma.
