Northern Japan hit by 6.5 magnitude quake, no reported damage
TOKYO (Reuters) – A magnitude 6.5 earthquake jolted northern Japan on Monday, prompting officials to issue a tsunami warning that was later lifted.
There were no reports of damage. Japanese broadcasterNHK said a 50-cm tsunami wave had been expected to reach the shores of Miyagi prefecture, hit hard by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
