Strong 6.8M quake triggered small tsunamis

Earlier today, a strong 6.8 magnitude quake jolted Japan's northern coast near the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant, the same location where the March 2011 disaster occurred, killing ten thousands of people and caused a meltdown at the power plant. Japan's Meteorological Agency states that this quake struck 10km below the seat surface off the Fukushima coast and triggering a 20cm tsunami at the coast of Ishinomaki Ayukawa, 50 minutes after the quake.

So far, after the strong quake, the Fukushima Daiichi and two other nuclear plants along the coast found no abnormalities and their reactors and fuel storage pools are safely cooled.
