TOKYO, November 22. /TASS/. A powerful earthquake of 7.3 magnitude has struck Japan's Fukushima prefecture on Tuesday.
Japan Meteorological Agency issued a tsunami threat. Local residents are urged to immediately leave coastal areas. A tsunami of up to three meters may strike the north-eastern part of the country soon.
The epicenter lay at the depth of 10 kilometers to the east of the Fukushima prefecture. Residents of 20 prefectures of central and north-eastern Japan felt tremors.
Walls were shaking for 20 minutes in the TASS representative office in Tokyo.
Japanese companies are urgently checking whether the country's nuclear power plants (NPPs) were affected by the earthquake. In particular, Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) is checking the Fukushima-1 NPP while Onagawa and Tokai NPPs located in the north-eastern part of the country are also being checked. No contingencies have been reported at Japanese NPPs yet.
