5.9-Magnitude Earthquake Felt In Tokyo, No Tsunami Warning Saturday July 07,2018

A 5.9-magnitude earthquake hit Japan Saturday evening July 07,2018 outside of Tokyo, swaying buildings in the capital, but no tsunami warning was issued.

The quake hit at 8:23 pm (1123 GMT), at a depth of 39 kilometres (24 miles), off the east coast of Honshu, Japan, the US Geological Survey said.

Japan's meteorological agency said no tsunami warning was being issued.

There were no immediate reports of damage after the quake, a relatively rare strong tremor to hit the capital.

Residents in part of the Chiba region outside Tokyo reported strong tremors, with some saying the shaking had knocked objects from shelves, but there were no immediate injuries reported.

Public broadcaster NHK said no abnormalities had been detected at nuclear facilities in the region.
