Another earthquake struck Japan minutes ago. Japan has been struck by a series of medium to strong earthquakes over the past few days. The German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported that a 6.0-magnitude struck 16 km south of Chiba, Japan at a depth of 61km.

Since the earthquake struck just moments ago, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.

No tsunami alerts have been issued yet, and it is still early to determine any damage caused. The earthquake was most likely felt in Ichihara, Mobara, Oami, Chiba, Togane, Yotsukaido, Yachimata, Kisarazu, Yokohama and Tokyo. More details to follow.
