Updated - Fukushima in Japan, ‘Tsunami warning lifted’

A tsunami warning for waves up to three metres has been issued after a 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit northeastern Japan.

People are being warned to evacuate low-lying areas and Tokyo Electric Power Co was checking its nuclear plants for any damage.

The epicenter is not far from Fukushima’s Daiichi plant, which in 2011 had a nuclear meltdown following Japan’s strongest-ever earthquake – a 9.0.

The operator of the plant said things appeared to be normal after Monday’s quake, according to Japanese public broadcaster NHK.
