From Times Wire Reports

Aftershocks jolted the west coast of central Japan today, keeping residents on edge one day after a strong earthquake killed one person, injured nearly 200 and flattened 68 homes.

Sunday morning’s magnitude 6.9 quake, which struck the Noto peninsula, about 190 miles west of Tokyo, also buckled roads, triggered landslides and cut off water and electricity to thousands of homes.

A magnitude 5.3 tremor, one of some 175 aftershocks, struck early today.
