Strong earthquake tremors were felt in Japan on Friday. The intensity of the earthquake was measured at 6.1 on the Richter scale. The National Center for Seismology reported that its epicenter was located 107 km east-southeast of Tokyo. He said the depth of the earthquake was 65 km.

Earthquakes are common in Japan, one of the world’s most seismically active regions. Japan accounts for about a fifth of the world’s earthquakes of magnitude 6 or higher. On March 11, 2011, the northeast coast was struck by a magnitude 9 earthquake, the strongest earthquake on record in Japan, and a massive tsunami. Those events triggered the world’s worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl a quarter-century earlier.
