M6.0 quake strikes SSE of Chichi-shima, Japan

Centered at 25.9ºN, 143.4ºE, about 90km SSE of Chichi-shima, the quake occurred at a depth of 10km , according to Japan’s weather agency.

Approximate Distances

  • 990km SSE of Katsuura, Japan
  • 1,050 SSE of Tokyo

Nishinoshima Volcano (27.247°N, 140.874°E)

The quake struck near Nishinoshima volcano, which resumed eruption on Tuesday. Intermittent eruptions have helped the volcanic island to grow by more than 12-folds in the past two years.

Located about 1,000 kilometers south of Tokyo, Nishinoshima Island currently measures about 2,000 meters across.

In 2013, an undersea eruption formed a new island near Nishinoshima, and continuing lava flows eventually linked the two islands several months ago.
