7.0 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Eastern Japan, Reportedly No Danger of a Tsunami

TOKYO – A strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 earthquake hit off the shores of Japan's southern Pacific island.
The Meteorological Agency says the offshore quake Sunday struck about 230 miles below the sea surface. The agency said there was no danger of a tsunami. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
Northeastern Japan was devastated by a massive earthquake and tsunami on March 11 that left nearly 20,000 people dead or missing. Japan, which lies along the Pacific "Ring of Fire," is one of the world's most seismically active countries.

But I'm glad there's no danger of tsunami.
I hope the damage won't be as bad as the other one.

Meh... it was over 200 miles deep and off the coast, no one felt anything i would imagine.

If you look at the google earth USGS plugin you can see that Japan has 5.0+ quakes almost daily... this one fortunately hit very deep and off the coast so no one there is any danger and probably didn't even know it happened except through news outlets.

Edit:

The 2012 references are great though, love the gifs lol.
