Turkey and Syria got shook real hard earlier. 7.8 earthquake. Close to 3,000 confirmed dead so far.

Sucks.

I grew up in San Francisco and after the 1989 earthquake I have feared them ever since. Can't even fathom 7.8.

I was on the train in the other side of the country in Japan for the 9.0 in 2011 and I had no idea what was going on for a few days cuz no electricity.

Some people I trained with died in Fukushima but everything was pretty safe, if shutdown, in Akita.

Earthquakes are scary.

The death toll will potentially be 8 times higher than reported currently.

It's bad folks.

We were in Okinawa and spent most of it trying to help people contact loved ones without burning through international call money. I had a huge list of numbers from SA that I dialed several times a day. Everybody was okay.

The news said we were all gonna die from a huge tsunami in Okinawa and then it barely splashed us.

I never want to live in an earthquake high risk zone again.

initial reports this morning suggest the quake occurred when opís mama fell down.

we are working to verify, as itís unclear if opís mama was near the epicenter at the time. our fact checkers are determining the present location of her zip code.

local authorities ask witnesses to come forward, but warn photos of opís mama are unavailable because they are still printing.

I can't even imagine what a 7.8 would be like. I was also in the Loma Prieta in 1989 and that was called a 7.1 at the time, now classified as a 6.9 (lol, sex number). But that quake took down the silicon valley and the bay area for a couple of days. Part of the bay bridge that collapsed took weeks to repair. A place where homes and infrastructure are specifically designed to withstand quakes.

7.8 is like "Is Godzilla rising out of the ground?" level of scary.
