We are okay here in Kobe.
The dawn earthquake woke me up unexpectedly. I was quite annoyed being awoken at that hour, especially when I was trying to catch up with sleep.
As I opened my eyes, it was still dark but I could make out that the bed was shaking. It was not as bad as the Niigata quake because there was not much noise.
Telling myself it was just a dream, I made myself go back to sleep hoping it was all just a dream. Soon enough the shaking stopped.
I only realised it was an actual earthquake when I checked the news the next morning. >.<
