7.3 earthquake hits Japan

  • A strong earthquake of magnitude 7.3 rattled Japan but reports suggest that Fukushima nuclear plant wasn't damaged. 

    The affected region, which included the Fukushima site, received tsunami warnings and workers were asked to move to higher ground. 

    Although, tremors were felt 300 miles away in Tokyo, no damage has been reported in the region. 

    The quake was 6.2 miles deep and hit at 3:10 am on Saturday. 

    Nuclear reactors in the country are still suffering from the strong 9.0 magnitude earthquake, which struck in 2001 and took the lives of 19,000 people.
