7.3-magnitude earthquake strikes off Japan

A tsunami warning is in effect for Japan’s Fukushima Prefecture after a 7.3-magnitude earthquake struck off Honshu at 5:59 a.m. Tuesday (3:59 p.m. Monday ET), according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.

A tsunami wave of 1-3 meters (3-10 feet) is possible, according to the agency. The US Geological Survey put the magnitude at 6.9, striking 37 kilometers (23 miles) east-southeast of Namie off the country’s east coast at a depth of 11.4 kilometers (7 miles).
Japan’s public broadcaster NHK urged the public to evacuate.
“Please do not think that you are safe. Please evacuate to high grounds,” the network said. “Even if you live inland please go and evacuate.”
