    Small local damage in Fukushima, Japan


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     soremite, an English teacher in Fukushima, Japan, shot these videos between 2:45 and 4 p.m. local time. He says 'the buildings were shaking violently. He later went to an evacuation center. 'The worst thing is I am 100 km away from the epicenter.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    I was in the apartment and it violently shook. No water or phones and major aftershocks 4 hours after.


    I am 100 km from Sendai which is near the epicenter. This was the worst earthquake I have been in for the whole 9 years of living in Japan.


    Several buildings are collapsed in my town. Trains, buses, and taxis are not running. Afterschocks are still going on every 15-30 minutes.
