As our friends in Japan, a strong earthquake triggered a small tsunami along Japan's Northern coast last Thursday and shook buildings hundreds of miles away in Tokyo. there were no immediate reports of significant damage or injuries. Some train lines in the North Eastern prefecture of Iwate were temporarily stopped after the magnitude 7.3 quake. Tohokan Electric Power said that their was no damage to their nuclear power station. The tsunami reached the coastal town of Fukato and other towns reported smaller waves reached its shore about 30 minutes after this quake which made damage to the ground and many people lost their lives. They were around 10,000 people who died because of the earthquake in Japan.
