Another earthquake strikes Japan

Yet another earthquake struck Japan early Tuesday morning, killing at least six people. The 6.4 magnitude quake triggered a landslide that buried three homes in Iwaki, according to the city’s fire department.

The quake was centered about 100 miles northeast of Tokyo and around 30 miles southwest of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, according to the United States Geological Survey. Although the earthquake did not cause a tsunami, the Tokyo Electric Power Company reported that around 220,000 households and businesses in Fukushima were left without power.

Japan has been hit with hundreds of aftershocks since the original magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck on March 11th. More than 13,116 people have been confirmed dead and over 14,000 people remain missing from the original quake.
