A magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck off Japan's eastern coast Sunday, luckily there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. The quake struck at 8:28 a.m. about 310 miles east of Tokyo. On Saturday, a magnitude 5.4 quake struck the northern island of Hokkaido. Soon afterward on Saturday, a magnitude 4.3 quake rumbled beneath the western province of Tottori, southwest of Tokyo. Neither tremor caused injuries or damage.
