Japan Earthquake: Powerful 7.4 Magnitude Quake Hits, Tsunami Warning Issued

A powerful earthquake measuring 7.4 on the Richter scale struck Japan’s western coast on Monday, January 1, 2024. The quake was centered off the coast of Ishikawa Prefecture, and was felt as far away as Tokyo and Kanto.

The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) issued a tsunami warning for the coastal regions of Ishikawa, Niigata, and Toyama prefectures. The warning was later downgraded to a tsunami advisory.

According to the JMA, waves of up to 5 meters were expected to hit the coast of Noto Peninsula in Ishikawa Prefecture.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. However, the quake caused power outages in some areas.

Japan is located in a seismically active region, and is prone to earthquakes and tsunamis. In 2011, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami struck Japan’s northeastern coast, causing widespread damage and loss of life.
