An earthquake of magnitude 7.6 on the Richter scale struck off the coast of Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan (you can think of prefecture is like a state.)  I am alive and well and thought to say something as a few have asked regarding the earthquake in Japan however many households in Ishikawa remain without water or electricity and more than 30,000 people are in evacuation centers after this event. Some roads have been cut, obstructing delivery of relief supplies. 

Intensity 6+ and 6- in many municipalities in the Noto Peninsula. Also, a tsunami of up to 1.2 m was observed. The earthquake caused many deaths, injuries, collapsed houses, spreading fires and landslides. Recovery is only just begun but the carnage is definitely to be remembered for years on.
