Here’s a messy video of my first ever earthquake experience, just now in Tokyo (M5.4, 90km depth). It doesn’t look spectacular at all, but it was a strange sensation. It felt different than I had imagined, but that may be because I was on the 8th floor. Definitely more swaying than trembling up here, but I wonder what that felt like on the ground floor.
The weirdest part was the next hour or so, in which wasn’t really sure whether what I was feeling were the aftershocks or just my mind playing tricks on me.
