Earthquake in Japan: July 2011?
After the march earthquake in Japan, there was a new earthquake in the month of July 2011.
Since it was a strong one, is there going to be another tsunami?
Japan has yet to recover from its nuclear crisis and the earthquakes keep on taking place there.
Did the latest quake cause a lot of damage? Is people OK in Japan?

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage from the 9:57 a.m. quake.
Small tsunamis were observed along the coast, measuring between 10 and 20 centimeters.

Residents in coastal areas were warned to evacuate for about two hours after the quake, but people is OK and safe now.
The warning has now been lifted. All the workers in the nuclear plant were evacuated just in case.

All times are GMT. The time now is 11:41 PM.
