A 6.8 magnitude earthquake has just hit Japan’s northern coast, with a tsunami warning being called off.
Japan’s Meteorological Agency said that the impact was felt early Saturday, 10 kilometers below the sea surface off the coast of Fukushima, northeast of Japan’s capital city, Tokyo.
This brings back memories to 2011, when a 9.0 magnitude earthquake struck 231 miles northeast of Tokyo.
There have not yet been any reported damages to the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant that’s in the area.
The earthquake registered a 4 on the Japanese seismic scale that gauges between 1-7.
Japan’s weather woes continue, as the country was hit with Typhoon Neoguri earlier this week.
Many Reddit users put their two cents in on the earthquake.
“The siren that the app made was more frightening than the earthquake itself. goddammit,” reddit user Woonie said.
“Felt this pretty strongly in Tokyo, probably 30+ seconds of shaking, but pretty gentle, at least in our hotel. No damage visible from here,” reddit user AbeV said.
