A 5.3-magnitude earthquake has hit the Japanese prefecture that is home
to the nuclear power plant crippled in the
March 2011 earthquake and
tsunami.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake struck early Friday at a depth
of about 13 miles (22 kilometers) under Fukushima Prefecture and about
110 miles (177 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not issue an alert.
The Japanese news agency Kyodo News reported that the plant’s operator,
Tokyo Electric Power Co., observed no abnormality in radiation or
equipment after the quake.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday ordered TEPCO to scrap
all six reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant and concentrate on
tackling pressing issues like leaks of radioactive water.
The 2011 disaster caused three reactors to melt and damaged a fuel
cooling pool at another. Officials have acknowledged that
radiation-contaminated groundwater has been seeping into the Pacific
Ocean since soon after the meltdowns.
The region lies on the “Ring of Fire” — an arc of earthquake and
volcanic zones that stretches around the Pacific Rim. About 90 percent
of the world’s quakes occur in the region.
