By Minami Funakoshi and Kaori Kaneko TOKYO (Reuters) - The desperate search for survivors intensified on Sunday in the splintered remains of buildings destroyed by Japan's deadly earthquake and authorities ordered nearly a quarter of a million people from their homes amid fears of further quakes. It was the second major quake to hit Kumamoto province on the island of Kyushu in just over 24 hours. Rescuers on Sunday searched for dozens of people feared trapped or buried alive, while survivors queued for scarce supplies of food and water.
