At least new to me. Just posted a few weeks ago. Amazing video from inside the Japanese airport near the ocean.

My exact response. Couldn't believe how long the earthquake went on, and how instantly the sea rose and overran everything.

I was in Berkeley during the 1989 Loma quake that flattened the bridges and overpasses, and it wasn't anywhere near this long.

That was a very unusual airport. Was that the right link?

Amazing. Those people who were watching must have been increasingly frightened as the water rose. I wonder how close it got to where they were standing.

Very frightening. What a terrible ordeal to experience.

IIRC, I read way back when it happened that there were ancient signs posted on high ground warning not to build below the point where the signs were posted.

No airport in that one, which was posted on YT years ago.

It's been around a while too. Can't imagine being in one that long. The Hanshin one was about 20 seconds but seemed like10 minutes. Looks like if you were sitting down, you'd feel safer lying down.

Looked to be about 2min 30sec of actual quake in the video. Strong quakes can only shake so hard so they shake long instead. The 8.4 I felt while in Chile in 2015 lasted 4min 30 sec. Seemed longer, though.

Your knees shake for a good couple minutes after... that's why it seems longer. At least, all the 7.0+ quakes I've been in, that's what happened.

Wow, you were in Chile! That's a story I'd like to hear more on. One of the few countries still on my bucket list.

You can search for my posts about the quake. I was in Chile with my wife who was directing a study-abroad trip for a semester. We had a wonderful time! We had, IIRC, 17 students. With the unrest in Chile this past end-of-year, they have only eight students for this next semester beginning in August.
