6.5-magnitude quake strikes off Honshu, tsunami warning issued

TOKYO - A magnitude-6.5 earthquake shook eastern Japan off the quake-ravaged coast this morning, the United States Geological Survey reported, prompting Japan to issue a tsunami alert. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries, but the Japan Meteorological Agency announced that a relatiely small tsunami of up to 0.5m may wash into Miyagi Prefecture. The alert was prompted by a quake that the US Geological Survey measured at 7.23am Japan time (6.23am Singapore time) near the east coast of Honshu. The USGS said the quake was 5.9km deep, and struck near the Miyagi prefecture. This follows the magnitude-9 quake off Japan's north-east coast on March 11 triggered a tsunami that barrelled onshore, triggering a humanitarian disaster that has killed and left homeless thousands of people.
