TOKYO (Worthy News)– A powerful 6.5-magnitude earthquake struck the east coast of Japan and triggered a tsunami warning near the site of the Fukushima nuclear power facility — the epicenter of a nuclear crisis following a massive 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
Whereas before the JMA urged everyone to "get out of the water and leave the coast immediately," that last update was less alarming. "Pay attention when fishing, swimming or engaging in other activities," the agency noted, "as there may still be slight sea-level changes for the time being."
According to the USGS, the quake was centered off Honshu island some 129 kilometers (79 miles) east-southeast of Namie and 284 kilometers east-northeast of Tokyo. It was 11 kilometers, or 7 miles, deep.
There were no immediate reports of damage. — Source
