Quake jolts northeast Japan, 50 cm tsunami warning issued
Sat, Jul 09 21:24 PM EDT
TOKYO (Reuters) - A strong earthquake jolted northeastern Japan on Sunday, and workers at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant were evacuated after an alert for a tsunami of 50 cm was issued by the country's metreological agency.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 7.3.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage, public broadcaster NHK said. The area was hit by a massive earthquake and tsunami in March which destroyed the Fukushima power plant and triggered a radiation crisis.
