Strong earthquake in Japan, tsunami alert issued

A powerful earthquake struck northeastern Japan on Saturday, hitting areas devastated by the 2011 catastrophe and generating a 1-meter tsunami.

According to Reuters , the Telegraph reports, the earthquake hit the coast of Miyagi Prefecture at 6:26 pm, and had a magnitude of 7.2 on the Richter scale, at a depth of 60 kilometers.

So far no possible fatalities or material damage have been reported.

A strong earthquake that struck off the coast of Japan a month ago, injuring more than 100 people, was a aftershock of the devastating 2011 earthquake that triggered the Fukushima nuclear meltdown.
