A Strong 6.5 Earthquake Hit Off Japan's Northern Coastline @ 10:36 PM Pacific Time. This is less than 100 miles offshore from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The same region destroyed from the March 11th 9.0 Earthquake & Tsunami. While the 9.0 March Earthquake prompted a U.S. Tsunami Warning they do not expect to issue one for the United States Coast at this time. We are still waiting on any damage or injury reports.
