Japan – 6.1 Magnitude Earthquake on September 20, 2017

Date: September 20, 2017
Type: AFA Article

Early this morning at 2:27 AM local time, Japan experienced a 6.1 magnitude earthquake approximately 200 miles northeast of Tokyo and off the Eastern Japan coast. There have been no reports of damage or tsunami warnings.   While a very small number of people have described feeling the effects of the earthquake, considering where the earthquake was centered – near the Fukushima nuclear plant, there was minimal impact.  There have been no reported injuries.  We encourage any of our Members who may require assistance to contact their Local Council Office at NRT or AFA International Employee Assistance at 1 800 424 2406.
