Powerful Quake Strikes Off Japan

A powerful and extremely deep earthquake struck near remote Japanese islands and shook Tokyo on Saturday. Offials said there was no danger of a tsunami, and no injuries or damage were immediately reported. The magnitude-8.5 offshore earthquake struck off the Ogasawara islands at 8:24 p.m. local time, at a depth of 370 miles.
Officials say the quake was powerful enough to rattle large parts of Japan's main island of Honshu. There was no tsunami warning because the quake struck so far beneath the earth's surface.
