A 7.3 magnitude earthquake has rocked northern Japan with the epicentre off the coast of Fukushima’s prefecture.

The earthquake triggered tsunami warnings in the area as well as plunging two million homes in Tokyo into darkness.

This was the same region effected by a devastating 9.0 magnitude earthquake 11 years ago which caused the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant to go into meltdown.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has said there was no longer a tsunami threat to the region, although the Japan Meteorological Agency kept its low-risk advisory in place just to be safe. 

Tsunami waves were measured at 20cm in height and have already made landfall, approximately 390kms northeast of Tokyo.

TEPCO the organisation currently decommissioning the Diiachi nuclear plant has said that the tsunami triggered a fire alarm in turbine building number 5, however after a close inspection announced that there was no fire.

They did however state that water pumps to 2 out of the 4 reactors had stop working at their Daini plant, however they have since come back online. The Fukushima Daini plant is also scheduled to be decommissioned, post the completion of the decommissioning of the Daiichi plant.

Japan’s Meteorological Agency said that the quake had hit at 11:36 p.m. at a depth of 60 kilometers below the sea.

The Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said power was expected to be restored soon after midnight Wednesday.
