Japan was hit by a 8.9 magnitude earthquake yesterday. The quake struck the northern part of Japan and according to reports it is the biggest recorded quake in Japan. In the world perspective, it is the fifth largest quake since 1990.

Reports an hour ago recorded a casualty of 236 dead, 725 missing and 1,028 injured. It was also reported that there were a total of 123 aftershocks, 110 of which has a magnitude of 5.



If you have a family member and friends in Japan, do contact them. Let's all pray that the nearby countries won't be hit by tsunami. It really scares the hell out of me.
