New 6.4 Earthquake Hits Honshu Coast of Japan

The U.S. Geological Survey is reporting that another strong earthquake has hit northeast Japan, the same region struck by March's massive quake and tsunami. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage, and no tsunami warning is in effect. The U.S.G.S. says the earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.4 struck at 3:53 a.m. Sunday in the Pacific Ocean, about 11 miles (18 kilometers) east-southeast of Iwaki on Honshu Island.
