Fukushima earthquake rocks Tokyo as 6.5 magnitude quake hits - Daily Star

Local news outlet SNA Japan confirmed the city had been rocked by a quake in a Tweet that said: "6.5 magnitude quake strikes off the coast of Fukushima and gives a good shake to Tokyo".

The epicentre of the 7.23 p.m. (1023 GMT) quake was off the coast of Fukushima prefecture and measured at a depth of 50 km (30 miles), the agency said.

The epicenter of the natural disaster, which struck at 7:23 p.m. local time, was 34.1 miles southwest of Fukushima prefecture and measured at a depth of 30 miles, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

The quake was also felt in Tokyo.

Public broadcaster NHK TV says utility companies are checking on the nuclear reactors in the area.

Nuclear power plants in the area have not suffered damage in the tremor, including the Fukushima Daiichi plant that suffered a meltdown following a quake in 2011, and authorities have said there is no danger of a tsunami.

More than 18,000 were killed after a 9.0-magnitude quake triggered a massive tsunami on March 11, 2011, leading to the meltdown of reactors at the Fukushima plant.
