Magnitude 7.3 Earthquake in Northeast Japan, Tsunami Warning

Quote:
(Reuters) - A strong earthquake centered off the coast of northeastern Japan shook buildings as far as Tokyo and led to a tsunami warning for coastal areas of the northeast, public broadcaster NHK said on Friday.

The earthquake had a preliminary magnitude of 7.3, the U.S. Geological Survey said. That was revised from an earlier estimate of 7.4.

A warning for a one meter tsunami was issued for the coast of Miyagi Prefecture in northeastern Japan, which was hit by a devastating earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011.

The warning said the tsunami could be as high as 2 meters (2.19 yards).


Buildings in Tokyo swayed for at least several minutes.
