Half an hour ago, wo. Came home early from work and was reading on the couch. Froze, it got worse, said bad word, much shaking, thought about taking cover and after 30 seconds it faded. Lots of aftershocks. Pretty continuous movement now. Seems little damage in city but businesses evacuating and power going on and off. No tsunami warning.
Wo, another one..........
8km down and just across the strait.
Five major shakes so far. Much movement. Dramatic shaking but little damage, no injuries coming through on radio. Shaking over most of the country. Continuous. Rolling.
Lights over table have been moving for 30 minutes.
