Earthquake Rattles Japan; No Risk of Tsunami

Jason Reed/Ryan McVay/Photodisc(TOKYO) -- A strong 6.0 magnitude earthquake is the latest to strike Japan.

Monday’s earthquake centered off the coast of Ibaraki, less than 200 miles from the capital city of Tokyo.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. Officials did not issue a tsunami alert.

On Friday, a 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck Ishinomaki, one of the cities hardest hit back in March when a 9.0 magnitude quake spawned a tsunami and devastated the northeastern part of the country.
