A large 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck off Japan’s eastern coast early Tuesday, according to the U.S geological survey. The depth of this tremor measured 9 kilometers (5.6 miles), the tremor was about
96 kilometers (almost 60 miles) east-northeast of Miyako and also 550 kilometers (342 miles) north-northeast of Tokyo, according to the U.S agency.
The quake took place just over a year and a half since the large 9.0 magnitude earthquake which triggered a giant tsunami, that devasted japan, resulting in thousands of deaths and one of the most prolofic nuclear disasters
the world has ever seen in quarter of a century.
The Japan Meteorological agencey, did not issue tsunami warnings after the quake took place Monday. A little more than 30 minutes after this first earthquake, another large quake, hit the same general area.
The 5.1 magnitude tremor was about the same distance from Tokyo along with the first and about 107 kilometers (66 miles) east of Miyako, which was effected by the previous March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
Another aftershock measuring 4.8 in magnitude, also occurred shortly after. With all of this shaking going, one has to wonder how close planet x could be to the earth, with five 7.0+ qaukes taking place in the last 45 days.
