TOKYO, Japan, November 9. SWIMMERS in attendance at the Tokyo stop of the FINA World Cup just had the experience of a lifetime as a 5.5 earthquake hit the city just a bit ago.
Plenty of swimmers took to Twitter to vent their nerves from the experience.
Woah! That was a scary earth quake! I looked my window to see if the city was still there only to see a bunch of people doing the same— George Bovell (@GeorgeBovell) November 9, 2013
Update: it was a 5.5 on the Richter scale.— Corey Okubo (@okubocorey) November 9, 2013
