The intensity of Japan's earthquake on Friday is shown in new footage captured north of Tokyo in Kashima, Ibaraki prefecture.

Gerrard Westby, who filmed the footage, moved to Japan a year ago from Nova Scotia in Canada.

He told the BBC "I've witnessed earthquakes before but never with so much ferocity and power.

I tried running through my third floor apartment to get outside only to watch my kitchen fall apart. It was crazy. The aftershocks rumbled through the night and continue every 5-10 min."
