JAPAN-QUAKE

Medical staff prepare to evacuate patients from the hospital in Kumamoto City on April 16, 2016, over fears it could collapse as a wave of aftershocks shook the area.
A powerful earthquake hit southern Japan early on April 16, 2016, authorities said, sending panicked residents from their homes and damaging buildings in a region where nerves were already frayed by a swarm of strong shaking. The earthquake hit just over a day after another strong tremor in the same area killed nine people, injured hundreds and toppled buildings. / AFP / KAZUHIRO NOGI (Photo credit should read KAZUHIRO NOGI/AFP/Getty Images)
