A 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck Fukushima coast in Japan on Friday but no case of a tsunami, officials report.

The earthquake struck at a comparatively shallow depth of 10 kilometres (six miles) at 04:59 pm (0759 GMT), about 255 km east of Ishinomaki, the United States Geological Survey stated.

According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, the quake did not come with any tsunami cases.

Recall March 2011 recorded a 9.0-magnitude earthquake which sparked a massively deadly tsunami which hit the Fukushima nuclear power station and resulted in the world’s worst atomic accident since Chernobyl in 1986.

It is expected that the cleanup exercise, which its operator is working hard to complete and also disintegrate the reactors, will take not less than four decades.
