FUKUSHIMA EARTHQUAKE 2016 - AMAZING FOOTAGE - TSUNAMI
TOKYO - A magnitude 7.3 earthquake was recorded off Fukushima in Japan on Monday, leading to a warning that a tsunami as high as 10 feet could strike land.
While the Japan Meteorological Agency said they measured the quake’s strength at 7.3, the U.S Geological Survey said it recorded a quake of magnitude 6.9 earthquake, some 36 miles northeast of Iwaki, Japan. Both agencies put the depth at just over 6 miles.
Reuters reports that much of the northern Japanese coast is being urged to evacuate due to the possibility of a tsunami. The Pacific Tusnami Warning Center said in a statement faraway places like Hawaii aren’t expected to experience any tsunami affects.
In 2011, a magnitude 9.1 earthquake in the same region triggered a massive tsunami and led to almost 16,000 deaths. The temblor and tsunami led to a nuclear disaster at the power plant in Fukushima, which is still causing problems to this day.
The operator of the plant said there were no abnormalities observed at the plant, Japanese public broadcaster NHK said.
Reuters reports that as a result of the 2011 disaster, all nuclear plants on the coast threatened by the tsunami are shutdown in the wake of the Fukushima disaster. Only two reactors are operating in Japan, both in the southwest of the country, far away from the tsunami warning.
While residents as far away as Tokyo reported feeling the shaking, there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage, Reuters reports. Two operators of potentially affected nuclear plants reported no initial signs of damage. 福島 地震 2016.11.22 Fukushima tsunami japan japon earthquake 津波 terremoto 福島 地震 2016.11.22 Fukushima tsunami japan japon earthquake 津波 terremoto
