Sunday quake probable aftershock from March earthquake

New details are available from Sunday’s earthquake in northern Japan. The Mainichi Daily News reported:

An earthquake with a magnitude of 5.3 shook Ibaraki Prefecture and its vicinity Sunday morning, the Japan Meteorological Agency said, revising down the intensity of the tremor from an earlier estimated magnitude 5.5.

There is no danger of tsunami due to the 10:23 a.m. quake, which is believed to be an aftershock of the magnitude-9.0 quake on March 11 in northeastern Japan, according to the agency.

The earthquake was centered in the city of Takahagi, about halfway between Tokyo and Fukushima, and is the strongest aftershock from the March tremor.
