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
