There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries and the Japan Meteorological Agency said the earthquake did not post a tsunami risk.

About 30 minutes earlier, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck an island in north-central Indonesia, just south of the Philippines.

While both quakes occured on the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, the two were not related, according to the USGS.
