TOKYO (AP) -- A magnitude 7.2 earthquake that hit northern Japan has shaken buildings in Tokyo. There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries, but officials are still assessing the situation
Japan's meteorological agency says the quake hit at 11:45 a.m. local time, and was centered about 200 miles north of Tokyo at a depth of about 6.2 miles.
Officials warned that a tsunami of about 20 inches would hit the coast 15 minutes later, but that time passed without any reports of a wave reaching shore. There was a 6.3 magnitude aftershock shortly after the main quake.
