Japan Suffers Another Earthquake and Fears Escalate

Japan suffers another 7.4 magnitude earthquake on April 7 with potential tsunami.

As if Japan has not suffered enough already, another 7.4 magnitude earthquake hit today with warnings of a possible tsunami. This earthquake is centered around the same general area as the first earthquake that has killed more than 25,000 people and devastated a country.

Officials do not believe that this latest earthquake has caused further damage to nuclear plants, but only time will tell.
