TOKYO – A strong earthquake measuring 7.4 on the Richter scale shook northeast and eastern Japan late on Thursday, and a tsunami warning was issued for the northeastern coast of Japan, an area badly hit by the March 11 earthquake.
Japan’s NHK public television repeatedly said those in areas where the tsunami warnings were issued should evacuate to higher ground. However, the warning was withdrawn after some time.
