Seismologists measured the earthquake near the east coast of Honshu, Japan, at magnitude 5.7.
So far, no lasting damage has occurred. The quake, an aftershock of the 9.0-magnitude Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, killing more than 15,000, in March 2011, may have registered as shaking and minor damage to buildings, says NOLA.com.
