Early on Saturday at around 1:08am, a significant earthquake struck the Philippine Sea, south western Japan. The 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck at a depth of 41.8km.
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.
The earthquake was widely felt in western Japan. The Weather Agency said that there is no risk of a tsunami. More details to follow.
