Earthquake Jolts Fukushima Again

I am sure that any earthquake - large or small - is a cause of concern for the people along the northeast coast of Japan - especially after what occurred back on March 11, 2011 with that massive 9.0 magnitude quake and subsequent tsunami, which in turn set off the worst nuclear crises since Chernobyl.

So, when a 5.2 Magnitude earthquake struck Fukushima-ken (Fukushima Prefecture) just after 2AM local time, Japan - It's A Wonderful Rife can assume there was a bit of hysteria.

The earthquake's epicenter was near Iwaki-machi (Town of Iwaki) on the coast, about 186 kilometers north of Tokyo.    

This earthquake was about 120 kilometers (70 miles) south of the Dai-ichi (Big One) nuclear facility that had, back on March 11, lost power and then began to have at least two partial meltdowns as it spewed radioactive materials into the air, soil and surrounding waters.

Later on Wednesday, a second earthquake shook an area about 423 kilometers (262 miles) southwest from Tokyo in the waters off the coast of Japan.

At the time of this writing, I am unable to confirm if there were any injuries or damages.
