Japan has been shaken by a strong earthquake off its eastern coast, closer to Tokyo than the massive quake that hit Friday. The latest temblor swayed buildings in the capital.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the temblor had a magnitude of 6.2 and struck at 10-26 a.m. Sunday. It was centred about 179 km east of Tokyo, at a depth of 24.5 km.
Japan’s north-eastern coast was battered Friday by a magnitude 8.9 quake, the largest on record in Japan, and an ensuing tsunami that washed over hundreds of miles (kilometers) of coastline, causing widespread destruction.
Japan has been rattled by more than 150 aftershocks since Friday’s massive quake.
