TOKYO – A 6.9-magnitude earthquake struck off Japan's southern coast Tuesday, shaking a broad swath of the country and swaying buildings in downtown Tokyo.

No damage or injuries were immediately reported, and Japan's meteorological agency said there was no danger of a tsunami.

The temblor hit at 12:25 p.m. local time (0325 GMT), with the epicenter near the Ogasawara Islands, about 500 miles (800 kilometers) south of the main Japanese island, the agency said. It struck at a depth of 300 miles (480 kilometers).

Japan's meteorological agency reported a magnitude of 6.9, however, the U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was 6.6. The reason for the discrepancy was not immediately clear.

Oh boy do I remember; when I was a teen living in Japan for two years (mil brat) we had lots of small earthquakes and tremors where no one died but there was some damage depending on how big, from no real damage to cracks, fallen things, broken from falling, and of course Nerves.

Glad no one was hurt! Sounds like things are all good.

The discrepency is probably just because the exact quake number always changes as more data comes in to work from. With the Christchurch one, the richter scale value of the quake decreased by at least .1 every day as they got more readings. In absolutely typical Kiwi-style, Christchurch has rebranded itself as "The city that rocks!" :rolleyes: :hehe:
