Countdown to the M9.0 earthquake in Japan – March 11, 2011

We were sitting in a coffee shop in central Tokyo when a few seconds before the M9.0 earthquake hit Japan on March 11, 2011, a centralized warning system suddenly announced that an earthquake was about to hit Tokyo in 54 seconds. I got my mobile camera out just in time to get the count down on record… the video does not reflect the true impact of the quake, but everything just went on shaking for a really long time. Will never forget those terrifying moments. Check out the video below:
