Another earthquake jolts northeastern Japan

New York:  The US Geological Survey (USGS) is reporting that another strong earthquake has jolted northeastern Japan, the same region struck by March’s massive quake and tsunami. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage, and no tsunami warning is in effect.

The USGS says the earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.4 struck at 3:53 am on Sunday in the Pacific Ocean, about 11 miles (18 kilometres) east-southeast of Iwaki on Honshu Island. Its depth was 27 miles (43.5 kilometres).

USGS says its epicentre is 114 miles (184 kilometres) northeast of Tokyo.

About 23,000 people died or were left missing across wide swaths of Japan’s northeast coastline after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Another 80,000 have been forced to evacuate their homes because of the radiation threat from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.
