This epicenter of this aftershock occurred deep in the Bay of Yokohama and this was felt very intensively in Tokyo also. Maximum JMA intensity was only 3.
Felt Report from Tokyo : I thought I was hallucinating for a moment, but then I remembered I’m in Tokyo. I always look at a glass of water to double check, but I didn’t even need to this time. The walls work shaking and everything in my room was trembling. Not severe enough to cause any damage, but it’s definitely the strongest earthquake I’ve been conscious of since May 2011.

The page is regularly updated to add new earthquakes.
green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries
