New aftershock rattles quake-devastated NE Japan

A new aftershock of 6.0 magnitude has rattled northeast Japan on Wednesday.



Tokyo: A new aftershock of 6.0 magnitude has
rattled northeast Japan.
Scores of strong aftershocks have followed the 9.0
magnitude earthquake that struck Friday and caused a devastating tsunami.

The US Geological Survey said the new aftershock struck
about 1 pm today near the coast of Honshu in northeast Japan.
That`s about 59 miles (95 kilometres) from the capital,
Tokyo.

Two aftershocks yesterday afternoon caused buildings in
Tokyo to sway. They were measured at 6.0 and 6.2 magnitude.
