The summary:  The latest major earthquake in Japan, a 7.0 rumbler that hit early Monday morning, has left Japanese citizens scrambling and puts the Fukushima nuclear plant on alert once more.

The reaction:  Sadly, huge aftershocks in Japan are starting to become regular news.  The are no reports of major damage coming as a result of this latest aftershock but these earthquakes are making it progressively more difficult for the battered nation to recover.

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is said to have withstood the earthquake without any interruption in operations but the plant remains highly vulnerable to repeated earthquakes or tsunamis.  Let’s pray that this ends for Japan and that the nation is able to begin the long recovery process.
