      Strong quake shakes Tokyo region




      TOKYO (AP) - An earthquake has rattled the Tokyo area hours



      after a stronger tremor caused a small tsunami on the northern



      Japanese coast.


      The Japan Meteorological Agency said the second earthquake was



      magnitude 6.1. It was just off the coast of Chiba, east of Tokyo,



      at a rather shallow 10 kilometers (6 miles) below the sea surface.


      There was no immediate report of damage or injury from the



      second quake. The tremor earlier Wednesday evening caused small



      swelling of water on the northern coast, including part of the



      region hit by last year's massive earthquake and tsunami

      .
