Massive Earthquake strikes Japan making people run for safety but Tsunami warning lifted
It seems Japan will always be plagued with a perennial sword over its head in the guise of tsunamis and earthquakes. Just a few hours ago the country was blasted with another earthquake measuring no less that 7.4 on the Richter scale. The quake struck in the early hours of the morning today at 6 am Japan local time. The quake hit the country’s eastern coast causing waves as high as 9.8 ft to crash inland but as they hit the coast the height reduced.
The latest Fukushima earthquake has resulted in Japan lifting its tsunami advisories as the tsunami alert has ended.
1 Tsunami advisory has been lifted
Previous to the tsunami advisory, thousands were asked to evacuate the danger prone areas. The country is still reeling under the fright of the last devastating earthquake in 2011 which triggered massive tsunamis killing 18,000 people. It was the most powerful ever recorded and initiated a meltdown in the Fukushima nuclear plant.
