Japan has been hit by a second major earthquake in two days. On Thursday, a magnitude 6.9 earthquake hit the island country destroying homes and buildings and killing 9 people. What was thought to be the major quake in Japan, turned in to just a large tremor as another bigger earthquake struck yesterday. This one a magnitude 7.3.
We want to keep Japan in our prayers as they continue to deal with the devastation and damage and loss of life of this major earthquake in the days ahead. It is being reported that at least 40 people have been killed and a thousand others have reportedly been injured–these are still very early reports as these situations go.
Photos and stories are starting to emerge of some of the damage done in the region, including an amazing rescue of an 8 month old baby that had been trapped in a house that had fell down.
Pray for the people of Japan and those rescue workers and first responders that are trying to help as much as possible. Let’s also pray that aid–food, water, and shelter, can be established quickly for those affected in these regions.
