News has come today of another earthquake in Japan. This time it hit southern Japan (Kyushu) at around 6 on the seismic scale. At least two people (at the time of writing) are reported to have been killed and many more injured. I hope the number does not rise. Apparently the aftershocks can be just as deadly as the earthquake itself so I sincerely hope people are being careful and that rescue attempts are not hampered by these aftershocks.
Postscript: that 6.5 earthquake was followed up by a 7.3 scale earthquake, also in Kyusuhu, as well as landslides and another earthquake measuring 7.5 has since happened in Ecuador. I hope rescue efforts are successful.
