On Saturday morning an earthquake of magnitude 7.3 has struck off Japan’s east coast.
This triggered some small tsunamis but caused no apparent damage.
Satoshi Mizuno, an official with the Fukushima government’s disaster management department said “It was fairly big, and rattled quite a bit, but nothing fell to the floor or broke. We’ve had quakes of this magnitude before. Luckily, the quake’s center was very far off the coast.”
This quake was an aftershock of the magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami that struck the same area in 2011, killing about 19,000 people.
