Tsunami Warning Lifted for Japan Earthquake

Ad Feedback

A strong earthquake has struck the same region of northeastern Japan that was hit by a massive earthquake and tsunami last year.

Japan's meteorological agency issued tsunami warnings after the quake but cancelled them later.

One city reported a small tsunami had hit but but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The earthquake had preliminary magnitude of 7.3 and struck in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Miyagi prefecture at 5:18 p.m.
The quake caused buildings in Tokyo to sway for several minutes. 

Overall, there was very little damage. The Fukushima nuclear plant, which was severely damaged in the 2011 devastating earthquake and tsunami, was unaffected this time.
