Magnitude 6.8 quake, small tsunami hit east Japan, no damage

TOKYO (Reuters) - A magnitude 6.8 earthquake hit off eastern Japan on Saturday morning, the Japan Meteorological Agency said, with minor tsunami of up to 20 cm but no reports of damage along the northeast coast that was ravaged by the catastrophic March 2011 tsunami. No irregularities were reported at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, which was damaged in the 2011 disaster in the worst nuclear accident since Ukraine's Chernobyl in 1986. The quake registered a moderate 4 on the Japanese seismic scale of 1-7, meaning that major damage was unlikely. #Yahoo! #content #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #rco #aut #rch #typeof-registered #cnt
