Japan - July 30th, 2011

Fukushima - July 19th, 2011

A 6.4 magnitude earthquake has been felt in northeast Japan, shaking buildings in the capital Tokyo, reports say. The quake’s epicentre was off the east coast of Honshu. The main orthorectified image focuses on the northeastern coast of that island on the day of the recent quake.

It struck in the same area as the 11 March earthquake and tsunami but no abnormalities at Japanese nuclear plants were reported, Reuters reports. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries and no tsunami warning was issued.

More than 20,000 people died or were reported missing as a result of the disaster in March, which also crippled nuclear reactors in the Fukushima area. The detail image, also orthorectified, gives a recent view of that area, with Tokyo partially visible at the bottom upon opening the full version.
