Strong Earthquake Shakes Quake-Stricken Portion Of Japan

Strong earthquake jolts northeastern Japan

TOKYO (AP) — A strong earthquake has jolted northeastern Japan, the same region devastated by March’s massive quake and tsunami.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage from the Saturday afternoon quake, and no tsunami warning was issued.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude-6.4 quake was centered 22 miles (36 kilometers) below the sea bed in the Pacific Ocean, 257 miles (414 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo — in the same area where more than 22,000 people were killed or went missing after the March 11 quake and tsunami.
