Disaster: Earthquakes
Paragraph: In London, many tourists like to visit a special ‘earthquake machine.’ This allows you to stand in a room which looks like a super market, to see the room shaking, to hear the shelves trembling, and to feel the floor moving up and down. It is almost like experiencing a real earthquake.

I was surprised at the News of Kobe earthquake on 17th Jan 1995, when I got up and watched TV in the morning. It was a scene of the earthquake that I saw for the first time. I realized the fear of a fire after the earthquake. I thought nobody can control nature.

I remember the Kobe earthquake vividly - I was at my friend's house in Sawamura (Matsumoto) that night watching the news in disbelief.

It's a bit scary that Matsumoto sits on one of the fault lines, don't you think?
