Rivers Cuomo - Rivers Cuomo In Earthquake Scare
Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo was caught up in an earthquake in Japan on Friday (15Jul11).
The Buddy Holly hitmakers are currently in the Far East for a series of concerts and were left shaken when a 5.3-magnitude tremor hit eastern Japan.
Buildings in the capital, Tokyo, were shaken by the quake although there were no early reports of significant damage or injury - but Cuomo was left unsettled by the incident as he's staying in a high-rise hotel.
In a post on his Twitter.com blog, he writes, "We just had an earthquake here in Japan so I was asking the Japanese tweeters how strong it was (and) where it was. I'm in a high-rise hotel."
Thousands of people were killed when a devastating earthquake and tsunami hit Japan's east coast in March (11).
