22 11 2016

A 7.3 magnitude earthquake shook northern Japan at 5:59 am on 22nd of November, 2016, triggering a small tsunami.

Japan Meteorological Agency said that the epicentre of the earthquake, which was felt in Tokyo, was off the coast of Fukushima prefecture at a depth of about 10 km (6 miles).

The quake however did not kill or injure anyone, nor did it damage the Onagawa Nuclear Plant, though Tokyo Electric Power Co was still checking if the other nuclear plants in Fukushima are damaged.

The biggest quake recorded to hit Japan was a 9 magnitude quake, causing a large tsunami which led to the world’s worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl, a quarter of a century earlier.

Below are some videos of the tsunami waves surge:
