    A tsunami alert has been issued for Japan's northeast coast after a strong earthquake shook buildings as far away as Tokyo.


    The tremor struck in the Pacific Ocean at a depth of 23 miles, and the epicentre was 285 miles from the capital.


    The earthquake had a preliminary magnitude of 7.3, the US Geological Survey said, adding that there was no risk of a widespread tsunami.


    An alert for a one-metre high tsunami was issued for the coast of Miyagi Prefecture in northeastern Japan, which was hit by a devastating earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011.


    That quake triggered fuel-rod meltdowns at the Fukushima nuclear plant, causing radiation leakage, contamination of food and water and mass evacuations in the world's worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl in 1986.


    Tokyo Electric Power Co, the operator of the Fukushima nuclear plant, reported no irregularities at its nuclear plants after the latest quake.

    You can never underestimate the power of a tsunami I was in Thailand a few years back when...

    The Thai government reported 4,812 confirmed deaths, 8,457 injuries, and 4,499 missing after the country was hit by a tsunami caused by the Indian Ocean earthquake on 26 December 2004...

    Thanks SmartMan let's hope the fallout from this one in Japan is not as devastating...

    Let's pray and hope nothing bad happens. BTW, It's in Japan not China.
