BREAKING: Tsunami will hit Fukushima soon according to local media in Japan

A massive earthquake measuring 7.3 in magnitude has struck off the coast of Japan triggering a tsunami warning and a warning to locals to leave to higher ground and they are reporting to people to not return home after a small 3m Tsunami has just hit as a higher tsunami could hit.
The earthquake measured 10km in depth, according to the US Geological Survey, and occurred near Fukushima.

It comes five years after Japan’s coast was struck by a 9.1 magnitude earthquake; leading to a tsunami which caused devastation along its coastline.

The disaster caused one of the nearby Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant’s reactors to overheat and led to three nuclear meltdowns.

A tsunami warning has urged people to evacuate their properties immediately and estimates its height to be three metres, NHK World reported.

Tremors were reported as far away as Tokyo, where it is the early morning, however it is unclear whether any damage was caused.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injury, while Tokyo Electric Power Co said it was checking its nuclear plants in Fukushima for damage.

Television footage showed ships moving out to sea from Fukushima harbours.

The incident is the latest in string of seismic activity around the world, including one near Christchurch in New Zealand that measured 5.1 in magnitude.
