Japan earthquake: New footage of quake impact in Kashima


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."
