[Japan had a Magnitude 9.0 Earthquake on Friday, March 11, 2011 at 05:46:23 UTC. The offshore earthquake caused a huge Tsunami which added to the damage. Currently, there is relentless effort to avert a nuclear disaster at the Nuclear Reactors that were damaged due to these events. We all wish for the immediate safety and quick recovery of the Japanese people.]
