A major earthquake struck in the Pacific Ocean off northeastern Japan early Sunday, triggering a tsunami alert and the evacuation of the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant.
The U.S. Geological Service said the quake measured 7.0 magnitude. Japanese measurements put it at 7.1.
The quake’s epicenter was 130 miles east of Sendai, a city hard-hit by the huge quake and tsunami that devastated northeastern Japan in March. The depth was about 20 miles. (here)
May the people of Japan be in your prayers.
