Earthquakes Rattle Tokyo

TOKYO — Strong earthquakes in the Pacific Ocean shook Tokyo and eastern Japan today, but no major damage was reported, according to various media outlets.

Also, authorities said the risk of a tsunami is minimal.

“Since it was a very large-scale earthquake, we would expect to see some modest aftershocks,” The Associated Press quoted Tamotsu Aketagawa, an official with Japan’s Meteorological Agency, as saying.

Japan is located on top of four tectonic plates, making it prone to earthquakes.
