Earthquake jolts Japan’s northeast coast and Tokyo, triggers tsunami warning

A strong earthquake jolted Japan’s northeast coast on Wednesday (March 16), shaking buildings and triggering a tsunami warning.

The tremor registered a magnitude of 7.3 on the Richter scale and as high as a 6-plus on the Japanese shaking intensity scale in some areas — too strong for people to stand, according to public broadcaster NHK.

The same region was hit by a major quake followed by a tsunami in 2011 that triggered the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

The earthquake was felt in central Tokyo. Video in a Tokyo apartment room shows ceiling lights, wall clock and art shaking.
