Just a few months after an earthquake had struck Turkey, Japan became the latest country that was hit by the disaster.

On Friday evening (26 May), a strong earthquake, with a magnitude of 6.2 struck Tokyo. Many buildings in the area were shaking but there were no reports of major damage as reported by NHK Times. The magnitude was detected at a depth of 50 kilometers off the eastern Chiba Prefecture on Friday at 7:03 pm.

According to the Meteorological Agency, no warnings of tsunamis have been alerted. Footage from NHK also showed buildings shaking near Narita Airport in Chiba. Meanwhile, the East Japan Railway Co. (JR East) said it was suspending some train services in the Chiba Prefecture.

Just weeks ago, a magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck another area in Japan – Ishikawa. The previous quake, however, claimed one life and injured at least 22 people.

According to Japan Times, earthquakes are common in Japan as the place is one of the most active areas for disaster. The country accounts for one-fifth of the world’s earthquakes, with at least a magnitude of six.

Back on March 11, 2011, the northeast coast was struck by a magnitude nine earthquake, the strongest quake in Japan on record, and a massive tsunami. Those events triggered the world’s worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl a quarter of a century earlier.

As of May 26, the Malaysian Meteorological Department has confirmed that there are no warnings of Tsunami in Malaysia.
