Tsunami warning issued after massive 7.3-magnitude earthquake strikes off Fukushima in Japan 

An earthquake of magnitude 7.3 struck early on Tuesday, local time, off the Japanese coast, some 67 km northeast of Iwaki, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The USGS reported the quake with a depth of 10 km struck about 6am and tsunami waves began to hit Japan's Pacific coast about 7am.

The epicentre of the quake is near Fukushima, where an earthquake in 2011 caused a nuclear plant to have a meltdown.

Tsunami waves are estimated to reach three metres tall in areas on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If a tsunami floods the reactor site, it could trigger an increase in the spontaneous fission taking place in the ruined cores down in the ground.
