Another voice on the ground, Grammy-winning American musician John Mayer:
Official number seems to be 6.2 magnitude. And epicenter very close to Tokyo.— John Mayer (@JohnMayer) May 4, 2014
Earthquake just rolled through Tokyo for about a straight minute. Wild. Around a 5 magnitude, it seems. Biggest I've ever felt here.— John Mayer (@JohnMayer) May 4, 2014
There was a similar-sized earthquake that struck the Inland Sea between the country's three main islands just a few weeks ago. There was also no tsunami warning.
