The operators of Japan’s crippled nuclear power plant said there was no damage caused to the plant early on Saturday, despite a magnitude 7.1 earthquake striking offshore and triggering a small tsunami.
An earthquake official with the Japan Meteorological Agency said the quake was an aftershock of the magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami that struck the same area in 2011, killing about 19,000 people and devastating the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant.
Workers at the plant were told to leave waterfront areas and head to higher ground.
Japanese television reported a one foot tsunami had reached Japan’s east coast, but one-metre high tsunami advisory warnings were lifted approximately two hours later.
