TOKYO -- More than 150 people were reported injured on Sunday after an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.3 hit northeastern Japan late Saturday night.

No deaths have occurred related to the quake that took place at 11:07 pm Saturday local time, logging Upper 6 on Japan's seismic intensity scale that peaks at 7 in parts of Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures, the government said.

Although no tsunami has accompanied the temblor, the quake has caused blackouts, water cuts and bullet train suspensions in stricken areas.

The quake was also felt in several other areas including the country's capital Tokyo.

Apart from Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures, injuries were also reported in six others, including Chiba, Kanagawa and Saitama, which all neighbor Tokyo.
