According to Reuters, TEPCO–the agency that oversees the crippled Fukushina Daiichi power plant that was damaged during the March 11 quake–said that the Thursday morning earthquake didn’t impact the plant.. TEPCO said there were no irregularities following the quake and the story is still developing..

The quake was centered near Nagano and was felt as far away as Tokyo. No tsunami warnings were issued.. Rescuers pulled 21 people out of the debris of their wrecked homes.. The quake also temporarily halted high-speed train service, caused several major roads to collapse and shut down others because of landslides.. No damage has been reported at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant, the world's largest. The plant has been off-line since an earthquake in 2011...
