TOKYO, May 05, 5:51 /ITAR-TASS/. At least 12 people were injured as a result of a strong earthquake which had a magnitude of 6.0 which occurred in the area of Tokyo on Monday. All information about victims came from Tokyo district and Kanagawa Prefecture adjacent to it from the south-west, local authorities reported.
Transport services in Tokyo are operating normally and no damage has been reported. As a result of the earth jolt, an automatic safety system cut off gas supply in several hundreds of houses. The authorities are now busy restoring the supply of gas.
The epicenter of the quake was in Sagami Gulf, south-west of the Japanese capital and the focus of the jolt was at a depth of 160 km beneath the seabed. Earth jolts were felt in 26 out of 47 prefectures of Japan. In the building housing the Itar-Tass representative office, the walls and furniture were shaking strongly and crockery dropped from shelves.
