    Tsunami warning lifted

    TOKYO - A powerful earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.1 struck southern Japan early Saturday, barely 24 hours after a smaller quake hit the same region and killed nine people.

    Japanese broadcaster NHK said a number of calls were coming in from residents reporting people being trapped inside houses and buildings.

    The quake shook the Kumamoto region at 1:25 a.m. Saturday, and several aftershocks soon followed. Japan's Meteorological Agency issued an advisory for a tsunami up to 1 meter (3 feet) high along the coast west of the epicenter in Kumamoto; the advisory was lifted less than an hour later...

    How frightening for all the residents! And if they lived through the March 2011 quake/tsunami/Fukashima meltdown, this has to causing flashbacks and an increase in PTSD symptoms for many. Praying for victims, first responders, and those reliving the awful events of 2011.
