A suspected 6.2-magnitude earthquake shook western Japan's Tottori prefecture Friday afternoon, causing some injuries and property damage, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.
The temblor struck near the city of Kurayoshi, west of Osaka, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
At least 10 injuries were reported, fire officials said, and some buildings were damaged. The earthquake temporarily disrupted highway travel, bullet train service and airport schedules, and nearly 80,000 homes endured a temporary power blackout. No injuries were reported at the region's nuclear power plants, which were automatically powered down, and no tsunami warning was announced.
