6.3-magnitude earthquake hits Japan, no tsunami threat

AIR
In Japan, a 6.3-magnitude earthquake has hit off Fukushima. Tremors were also felt in the national capital Tokyo, around 250 KMs away. However, the authorities said, there was no tsunami threat.

The Japan Meteorological Agency said, the epicentre of the earthquake, which struck at 7.23 pm local time, was off the coast of Fukushima prefecture and measured at a depth of 50km.

Japanese authorities said that there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. Bullet train services were temporarily suspended in the region.

The nuclear plants in the region were reported to be unaffected by the earthquake. In 2011, a massive 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami triggered a nuclear accident in Fukushima. 


Earthquakes are common in Japan, one of the world's most seismically active areas. Japan accounts for about 20 per cent of the world's earthquakes of magnitude 6 or greater.
