Aftershock of 2011 earthquake rocks Japan's Fukushima region
Just weeks from the anniversary of the great earthquake of March 11, 2011 that damaged the Fukushima nuclear plants and claimed 18,000 lives, Japan was hit again by a temblor, said to be an aftershock, on Saturday.

TOKYO, Feb 15: The earthquake that struck off the coast of Fukushima in the north-east of Japan on Saturday was an aftershock of the devastating March 11, 2011 quake which damaged the Fukushima nuclear plants, according to the Meteorological Agency.

Saturday night’s (local time) earthquake injured more than 100 people. It had a 7.3 magnitude and struck off the coast of Fukushima at a depth of 60 km. There were no reports of any major damages or tsunami. Power outages affected 9,50,000 households. Buildings in Tokyo, hundreds of km away, also shook. Landslides blocked expressways.

"Surveys are being done at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear pant... We have received reports that Onagawa nuclear plant and Fukushima Daichi nuclear plant are not showing any abnormality," BBC quoted Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato.

The torch relay of the Olympic Games this year in Japan is scheduled to start in Fukushima on March 25, marking the rebuilding after the 2011 disaster.

The earthquake of 2011 was the strongest recorded temblor in Japan’s history. It had a magnitude of 9.0. The following tsunami destroyed entire towns and villages and damaged the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. About 18,000 people died in the tsunami. The earthquake rattled a 500-mile region. The US Geological Survey (USGS) called it the largest ever recorded quake.

The whole country is in a very active seismic area. The world's greatest earthquake belt is found along the rim of the Pacific Ocean, according to USGS.
