Two aftershocks rattled northwestern Japan on Sunday, the day after a 6.0-magnitude earthquake damaged hundreds of buildings and forced nearly 300 people to seek refuge in shelters.

No injuries or damage were reported in the aftershocks.

Saturday’s quake injured 39 people and damaged 504 buildings and houses, said police spokesman Tokuji Komagata in Niigata, 160 miles northwest of Tokyo.
