TOKYO (AP) – A  strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.0 struck under the sea several hundred miles south of Japan on Sunday, shaking buildings in the capital, but officials said there was no danger of a tsunami.

The quake struck near the uninhabited island of Torishima in the Pacific Ocean, 370 miles south of Tokyo, and its epicenter was about 230 miles below the sea, the Meterological Agency said.

The agency said there was no danger of a tsunami.

Lord have mercy! 2012 just started and now this happens??

Pray for Japan......

Lord have mercy!
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

Thanks be to God, no injuries reported.  What a way to wake on on the New Year, though!
In His Mercy,

Does Japan have earthquakes like this a lot and I've just been noticing them more often as of late, or has Japan - lately - been suffering through more of them.
