Japan earthquake
Author: Bob3985

I woke up to get a drink and happened to see this news on the tv.
This happened Wednesday night and is listed as a 7.4 quake.
A bullet train derailed near Fukushima as a result of the earthquake but no injuries were reported.

It happen around 23:36 local time (10:36 EDT).

I felt an initial tremor.  I knew there was an earthquake, but not sure if it was a small one or not.
A moment later, I knew it was a quite bit quake, then felt the ground asking.
Immediately, search for the updates. found there was a quake in the Fukushima area.
The magnitude was almost similar to what happened 11 years ago. 
Noticed also, a tsunami warning was issued.

Tohoku Shinkansen operation has been suspended between Nasu-Shiobara and Morioka.
JR East offers special schedule runs between Tokyo and Nasu-Shibara. Also between Morioka and Shin-Aomori.
Between Nasu-Shiobara and Morioka. JR East offers special runs using Tohoku Mainline (exiting mainline).
In this segment, there will be rapid train service between Nasu-Shiobara and Sendai, and another one between Sendai and Morioka to bridge the gap.

JR East has announced that it will take a while to completely restore the Tohoku Shinkansen line between Nasu-Shiobara and Morioka.

Hope this helps.
