Strong earthquake jolts Kanto Region of Japan 2014-09-16

12:28 pm on the September 16th, there was an earthquake in the Kanto region. 

An earthquake with magnitude 5.6 occurred near TOKYO, Japan at 03:28:31.10 UTC on Sep 16, 2014. (This event has been reviewed by a seismologist.)

An earthquake with preliminary magnitude of 5.6 shook buildings in eastern Japan, including the capital Tokyo, on Tuesday but there were no reports of serious damage.

The earthquake was centred in Ibaraki Prefecture, just northeast of Tokyo, Japan’s Meteorological Agency said. The depth of the earthquake was 31 miles (50 km) and there was no risk of a tsunami, it added.

Japan Atomic Power Co and Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) (9501.T) reported no irregularities at their three nuclear plants in eastern Japan.

A Japan Atomic official said there have been no irregularities at the 1.1-gigawatt Tokai Daini plant, which has been shut since May 2011. A Tepco spokeswoman said there has been no irregularities at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant, wrecked by the March 2011 quake and tsunami, and Fukushima-Daini plant, which has been shut since March 2011.

  1. The best way to take care of yourself is to be always alert and be caution enough in accident. The good thing is I was able to searched for an service that is suitable for the whole family. It is a cell phone based service that alerts a monitoring center so 911 emergency responders will be dispatched to the exact location immediately also it has features that are helpful to the whole family.
