Japan on Saturday skilled a powerful earthquake that shook buildings within the capital, Tokyo.
The U.S. Geological Survey put the energy at magnitude 7.2. USGS stated the quake was centered 34 kilometers (21 miles) east of Ishinomaki at a depth of 60 kilometers (37 miles).
According to the Associated Press, the earthquake was centered off the coast of Miyagi prefecture, within the nation’s rugged northeast, which was closely broken through the enormous earthquake and tsunami of 2011.
The advisory for a tsunami up to 1 yard was issued for Miyagi prefecture. The tsunami might have reached parts of the Miyagi coast already, Japan’s NHK public television said. No casualties have been reported yet.
