7.2 Magnitude Quake Rips Japan, Kills At Least 6 People

7.2 Magnitude Quake Rips Japan, Killing At Least 6 People

A magnitude-7.2 earthquake crumpled the countryside in Japan on this morning, killing at least six people, leaving a path of destruction. At least eight people are still missing.

Military helicopters headed to the quake zone 250 miles north of Tokyo, bringing supplies and taking the injured to hospitals. At least 144 people were injured and landslides trapped 100 bathers at a hot spring resort, say officials.

Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda said they are marshaling "everybody we possibly can" to find the missing and rescue and treat the injured. "Our most important task is to save as many lives as possible, and we are doing the best we can."

My dad was in Japan when this quake hit. He felt it, but, thankfully was far enough away that he wasn't in danger.

sad. although, 6 people in comparison to the thousands in China makes me think that Japan was a lot more prepared for the quake.
