Popular YouTuber and streamer CDawgVA was live during the shock as well, startling him mid-sentence. “Oh! That’s a big earthquake!” he exclaimed.
His phone began warning him there was an earthquake and he shouted, “Oh s**t, this is a big one! Oh s**t, oh f**k. Okay, this is big. This is big, what the f**k.”
Twitch streamer RetroGaijin was out in the streets of Japan when the earthquake hit, scaring him and his friend Alyssa as they held onto each other during the shaking.
Gaijin’s phone got the same alarm CDawgVA’s did, alerting that an earthquake was imminent. The streamer jumped up and said, “What the f**k? Holy f**k. Oh, it’s bad. This s**t is shaking.”
Luckily, none of the streamers were injured from the earthquake and were able to continue their day as normal.
