A recent uptick in quakes near the plant is raising concerns about possible damage at the plant. One quake a few hours ago was a 5.7 with a depth of 9km. This one was slightly offshore. With a rough estimate of 5-6km of sea depth, this would make the quake even more shallow. Shallow quakes can be more intense and cause more building damage.
After the 5.7 there was no tsunami and a tweet from a Fukushima worker said there was no initial plant damage. TEPCO has not released any official report on the status of the plant in relation to that earthquake. No immediate damage was noted and crane work resumed soon after the quake. The 4 quakes dated Jan 12 (UTC) were almost 2 hours apart in a series.
The constant battering the damaged reactors are taking can not be good for structural integrity.
Earthquakes last 7 days near Fukushima Daiichi. Other earthquakes in Japan but in other areas are not included on this list.
UPDATE: Another 5.0 off the east coast of Honshu.
