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??

Lord have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

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.
