A magnitude 6.0 earthquake rocked Japan’s coastline Friday, threatening an already volatile area and recalling the disaster of 2011, in which at least 16,000 people died. Friday’s temblor struck at about 4 a.m. EDT near the Japan Trench, about 200 miles away from the Fukushima nuclear disaster site, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The most recent quake did not trigger a tsunami, and no injuries nor damaged buildings were immediately reported Friday. But all eyes remained on the sensitive Fukushima region, which is still recovering from the damage caused by the previous disaster.
