Magnitude 7.4

We have just had another aftershock which felt quite big in Tokyo.  It came about 15 seconds after the earthquake warning on our mobile phones. At magnitude 7.4 (initially it was listed as 7.1) and 6+ on the Japanese scale - it felt big enough to be an earthquake in its own right.  There are tsunami warnings & cautions.
