A woman walks past quake damage in Hachinohe, Japan. Strong aftershocks rattled northern Japan early Thursday morning after an earthquake that killed two people and injured 274. The undersea quake Wed-nes-day evening was centered in the Pacific Ocean about 390 miles northeast of Tokyo. It had a preliminary magnitude of 7.5. It ripped roads, wrecked dozens of buildings and forced thousands of coastal residents to flee during a short-lived tidal wave alert. In Tokyo, the quake was felt as a long, low rumble that made some buildings sway. Most of the injured were cut by broken glass or hit by falling objects. Police said at least 179 of those hurt were in Hachinohe, a coastal city about 95 miles west of the epicenter.
