Hi,guys.I will tell you about earthquakes that usually happen in Japan today.
Japan is known as a county for earthquakes that frequently occur every year.In 2011 Mar 11th,the huge and gigantic one hit HUKUSHIMA prefecture and it killed tens of thousands of people living around there.It was the worst earthquake ever in my life.When it happened,I was still a high school student and in the middle of graduate ceremony of the high school in TOKYO.Lots of instruments and appliance fell from shelves and shattered into fragments.Even if we Japanese were used to earthquakes,it was the exception,way too strong and out of control.
①How often do earthquakes occur in Japan?
According to Japanese government,it occurs more than 1,000 tremors that ordinary people are able to feel every year.Since ancient times,earthquakes have been the most horrible calamity for Japanese due to unpredictable things,even in spite of our high technological advances these days.The Japanese often humorously mention that the most horrible stuffs are earthquakes,fires,thunders,and mothers. The following diagram is the statistics of earthquakes happened in the past.
②How do you protect yourselves when earthquakes happened?
Once you felt the shake,you have to go under a table,hide your head and wait until it gets ease first.This is the first thing we usually learn in elementary school.
You should not go outside in hurry due to falling or collapsing a ceiling.Be calm and stay easy.
