THE QUAKE WHICH HIT THE SAME REGION THAT CAUSED THE FUKUSHIMA DISASTER HAS BEEN DOWNGRADED TO A 6.8, BUT NEITHER THE DAIICHI NOR DAINI NUCLEAR FACILITIES ARE REPORTING DAMAGE AND NO TSUNAMI ALERT WAS ISSUED.
THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT HAS NOT REPORTED INJURIES.
. While USGS originally reported the quake at 6.9 magnitude, JMA measured it at 6.6.
The quake struck at 6:12 am (local time) off the east coast of Japan's Honshu island in the Pacific Ocean, according to USGS, at a depth of 38.9 kilometres.
The quake hit 33 kilometres south east of the nearest city of Ofunato.
No abnormalities were reported at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, which was crippled by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011. However, some trains were reportedly delayed on the Tohoku Line between Fukushima and Sendai prefectures following tremors. Onagawa and Higashidori nuclear power plants also reported no abnormalities.
VERY GOOD TO READ THERE ARE NO INJURIES.
CONCERN OVER THE CRUMBLING, TILTED REACTOR BUILDINGS AT THE DAIICHI PLANT SHOULD WARRANT AN INTERNATIONAL TEAM'S INSPECTION AND VIDEO EVIDENCE THAT TEPCO IS NOT ONCE AGAIN LYING ABOUT CONDITIONS IN THE FUKUSHIMA PREFECTURE'S CURSED NUCLEAR FACILITY.
NEPALESE CITIZENS TERRIFIED
