Japan Earthquake Shakes Up CNN Tokyo Bureau (VIDEO)

CNN's Tokyo bureau was shaken up by the massive earthquake that struck Japan on Friday.

CNN reporter Kyung Lah showed viewers the chaotic scene that the quake caused, even hundreds of miles from the epicenter of the situation. She said she had been in a train station and that it became instantly clear that this earthquake was like none other she had experienced.

"You knew that this was different because it went on for quite a long time and you knew it was so strong," Lah said. "Normally if there's an earthquake, you look at your watch and move on."
