(RTTNews 3/27/2011 11:37 PM ET) – A fresh earthquake measuring 6.5 on the Richter Scale struck the north-east coast of Japan on Monday morning, just over a couple of weeks after a magnitude 9 quake and accompanying tsunami devastated the region.
The quake struck at about 07:23 local time some 67 miles east of the port city of Sendai, which has already been devastated by the earlier quake and tsunami. There have been no reports of immediate causalities or damages from the latest quake.
Though the quake prompted a warning of possible tsunami of 18 inches in the Miyagi prefecture, the Japan Meteorological Agency later lifted that advisory.
