6.2 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Tokyo, Japan Today

6.2 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Tokyo, Japan Today -- Japan's capital Tokyo  has just been shaken by a 6.2 magnitude quake earlier today, Japan's meteorological agency said. Tokyo's buildings swayed but NHK revealed there had been no abnormal signs and activities at the country's nuclear power plants, which is located near the epicenter.

The earthquake lasted for half a minute.

Japan Meteorological Agency reported:
An earthquake occurred at about 16:23 (0723) today
Its focus was in the north of Tochigi prefecture. Its depth is about 10 kilometres (six miles) and its magnitude is estimated at 6.2.
News like these are like usual occurrences in Japan. Since people are already accustomed to the natural phenomenon, all you can mere hear are usual verbal reactions like "whooo.. sugoi" (whoa, strong), "sugoi naa.." (its strong huh), "ah jishin da!" (ah earthquake) and the like. Then the usual daily chore continues.
