I wrote “More to Come” during the night of the 10th and only hours later, the morning of the 11th, I wake up to the news of yet another devastating earthquake hitting Japan.  The USGS registered it as a 6.6 magnitude but the Japanese officials say it was a 7.0.   According to reports, the quake caused more buildings to collapse, trapping people beneath the rubble, another tsunami warning was issued and then lifted, the crippled nuclear plants temporarily lost power, and other problems such as landslides.  The quake took place on a day the Japanese people were holding special events to honor their dead on this, the one month anniversary of the March 11th twin disasters.
