A 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Japan’s Fukushima prefecture on Saturday, violently shaking the cities on the eastern seaboard and prompting fears of a tsunami.
It was also registered as the highest possible on the local Japan Meteorological Agency Seismic Intensity Scale. A 7 quake in Japan indicates a violent, heavy earthquake which can shake people and objects around, destroy buildings, and crack the ground.

Is the Fukushima plant still leaking? Hopefully this new earthquake didn't just cause even more problems.

If you zoom in on the power plant you will see all of the massive amounts of contaminated storage around that facility. If another tsunami hit that place, massive amounts of contaminated materials would pour out into the ocean... The contamination would probably be worse than the original event.

Just woke up to the news this morning. I saw it said 6x . I didn't see any 7.
Got the end of the news but seems like it took some structural damage around town.
Maybe some others here that live also in Japan can tune in with an update.
