Earthquake hits northern Japan, no tsunami warning issued

TOKYO (Reuters) – An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.3 hit northern Japan on Thursday, public broadcaster NHK said.

A tsunami warning was not issued after the quake, which struck off the cost of Fukushima prefecture, NHK said.

On March 11, 2011, the northeast coast was struck by a magnitude 9 earthquake, the strongest quake in Japan on record, and a massive tsunami. Those events triggered the world’s worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl a quarter of a century earlier.
