OSAKA - A series of strong earthquakes rattled northeast Japan on Tuesday, keeping residents on edge more than a week after a devastating tremor and tsunami battered the region. Two 6.6-magnitude tremors and one 6.4 quake struck within two and a half hours off Japan's tsunami-stricken northeast coast, starting from 0718 GMT, the US Geological Survey reported. There were no reports of casualties or damage and no tsunami warnings. A record 9.0-magnitude quake, which spawned a towering tsunami, battered Japan's northeast coast on March 11, leaving more than 21,000 people dead or missing and triggering a crisis at a nuclear power plant in Fukushima. Around 20 percent of the world's most powerful earthquakes strike Japan, which sits on the "Ring of Fire" surrounding the Pacific Ocean.
