An earthquake 200 miles off the coast of Ishinomaki, Japan, triggered low-level safety advisories. The quake registered a magnitude of 7.1, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 7.3.
Several hours after the earthquake, a small tsunami measuring about one foot reached the coastline. No damage was reported and authorities lifted a tsunami alert for the region. The Fukushima nuclear plant, crippled after Japan's 2011 earthquake, also experienced no issues. Workers had been told to evacuate.
