TOKYO (AFP) - An earthquake registering 6.3 on the Richter scale shook the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, Kyodo news agency reported, citing the Japan Meteorological Agency.

Kyodo said authorities in the area said they had not received any reports of casualties or damage to property from the quake which occurred at 11:09 pm (1409 GMT) Tuesday. No tsunami warning was issued.

The focus of the quake was some 50 kilometres (31 miles) below the surface of the sea off the Kushiro area in eastern Hokkaido, Kyodo said, citing the meteorological agency.

Another earthquake along the active ring of fire. While it may not be true, we seem to be having more and more reports of intense quakes hitting seeming almost daily. Time to check the emergency supplies as we are only a few miles from the San Andreas fault.

I don't think there are more quakes lately so much as we are paying closer attention to quake activity.
