State of Calamity
On April 7, 2011, a 7.4 magnitude earthquake continued to rattle Japan with threats of another tsunami following last month’s tsunami and earthquake that killed over 25,000 people, leaving many in a state of calamity in the face of an ongoing crisis with damaged nuclear power plants.
