An earthquake measuring 7.1 in Fukushima

The northeastern Japan has been rocked again by an earthquake measuring 7.1 on the Richter scale at 9:57 a.m. (local time) with epicenter in the east coast of the island of Honshu, at a depth of ten kilometers. The operator of the Fukushima nuclear power plant, TEPCO, has not reported any new damage.

However, caution has been evicted by the technicians of the plant. The Government has maintained for two hours a tsunami warning in the prefectures of Miyagi, Iwate and Fukushima.
