6.3 earthquake in Japan

A magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck Ishikawa, Japan’s western prefecture.

No tsunami warning was issued after the earthquake on Friday (May 5), state-run media NHK said.

News agency Kyodo and media outlet NTV said there were no reports of any damage at the Shika nuclear power plant in Ishikawa Prefecture after the earthquake.

Also, no abnormality was observed at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant in neighboring Niigata Prefecture.

In 2011, a powerful earthquake damaged the Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, and radiation was released. The radiation spill at the Daiichi nuclear power plant was the worst nuclear accident since the Chernobyl nuclear power plant explosion in 1986.

Due to Japan’s location at the intersection of several active tectonic plates, the country experiences regular earthquakes. About one-fifth of the world’s earthquakes of magnitude 6 or greater occur in Japan.
