Another strong quake jolts Japan: 7.1 magnitude quake rattles Japan's northeast… low tide tsunami warning issued


One month after the 9 magnitude earthquake followed by a devastating Tsunami another tremor of 7.1 magnitude has been recorded in Fukushima , in the northeast of Japan. 


The epicenter of the latest quake, which hit Japan in 11 April 2011 at 5.16 pm local time, was at Fukushima prefecture, about 164 km northeast of Tokyo, and struck at a depth of 10 km.


Residents in Tokyo also felt the jolts that rocked the buildings in Japanese capital for nearly a minute.


Japan's Meteorological agency issued a tsunami warning, after the quake, predicting a potential tsunami wave of two-meters in Miyagi, Fukushima, Chiba and Ibaraki prefectures.


There have been about 16 shock waves recorded, until posting of this report, on Japan Earthquake map (click here to see the map)
