Magnitude 6.8 quake hits Japan

By Hannah Masterson

A strong earthquake with a magnitude of 6.8 struck off the coast of Japan today, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported.

The earthquake hit 468 kilometers (302 miles) south-southwest of Tokyo at a depth of 348 kilometers, according to the USGS.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre did not issue a tsunami warning.

Japan lies along the Pacific “ring of fire,” an area of high seismic and volcanic activity stretching from New Zealand in the South Pacific up through Japan, across to Alaska and down the west coasts of North and South America.

Japan are no strangers to earthquakes as last year a devastating earthquake and tsunami hit north-eastern Japan, leaving thousands of people dead.
