6.8-magnitude earthquake hits 100 miles from Tokyo: USGS

Posted: Updated:

TOKYO (AP) -- A 6.8-magnitude earthquake has hit Japan about 100 miles northeast of Tokyo.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports that the quake struck at 1:45 a.m. Thursday.

National television and police say no injuries or damage have been reported so far in Tokyo, and no tsunami warning has been issued.

Japan is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries because it sits atop four tectonic plates.
