Magnitude seven earthquake hits Japan, tsunami warning issued then withdrawn
Saturday, July 19, 2008
A tsunami warning has been issued for some parts of Japan's eastern coast after an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0 struck off the shore, near the city of Iwaki. It is believed, however, that the Tsunami warning was withdrawn as the Japan Meteorological Agency currently lists no Tsunami warnings, with two tsunami warnings from earlier today being listed in the past warnings section of the Agency's website.
The initial reports from the scene of the earthquake shown no injuries, although buildings were observed being shook by the quake 300 kilometers away in Tokyo.
