A magnitude 7.3 earthquake occurring off the Tohoku coast rocked the recovering area at 17:18 on Friday 12/7/2012 (Japan time). All Architecture for Humanity personnel and clients on the ground are accounted for. According to Yomiuri Newspaper, 11 people got injured, and one missing.

The tsunami warning in Miyagi prefecture is still effective at this time. Some tsunamis have been reported ranging from 20-100cm. Several smaller aftershocks were recorded as well.

Our team is visiting the coastal village of Maeami tomorrow, and will report back further on impacts after their visit.
