Tsunami Alert Lifted in Japan

A new earthquake has struck Japan, even as it continues to deal with the fallout of the last big one. Officials say a 7.4-magnitude tremor rocked Japan’s northeastern coast—the same region hit by the March 11 disaster. NHK reports that tsunami warnings have been lifted, but residents have been advised to move to higher ground. The Pacific Tsunami Center expects "small effects" for Japan's coast, "possibly destructive but in a small local area." And luckily, officials at the damaged Fukushima power plant reported "no problems" related to the new quake, though workers have been evacuated.
