I have a direct line to Japan as my in-laws live in Tokyo. The quakes that began to strike in great number after the 8.9 can be seen here.
Every video second represents an hour of time in Japan.
After a few handfuls of scattered introductory quakes, at 1:19 , you will see the big one strike. Then, it appears as shotgun blasts, peppering Japan with quakes. My father-in-law, after sustaining hourly quakes, began to wonder who was really shaking, his house, himself or both?
