A 5.3-magnitude earthquake struck Japan on Wednesday just hours after Typhoon Roke buffeted Tokyo with strong winds and rain, resulting in at least 13 people dead or missing.

The earthquake struck northeastern Japan just south of Fukushima, where an earthquake and tsunami crippled a complex of nuclear plants in March, according to ABC News.

Whether anyone was injured and the extent of the damage weren’t immediately known.
