Day 697 Signs of major health hazard in Fukushima

Tsunami advisory issued for Japan’s Pacific coast, Okinawa

TOKYO (Kyodo) — The Japan Meteorological Agency issued on Wednesday a tsunami advisory for parts of Japan’s Pacific coast and Okinawa in the country’s south, following a magnitude 8.0 earthquake that hit the Solomon Islands.

The agency predicted tsunamis of up to 50 centimeters after the quake that shook the island nation Wednesday generated a tsunami.

Warning the public to stay away from the coast on the Pacific side of the Japanese archipelago, the agency said tsunamis are forecast to reach the Ogasawara island chain around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Tsunami could also reach Amami Island in Kagoshima Prefecture in the early hours of Thursday.

A tsunami warning was initially issued for the wider South Pacific region by the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, but that was later cancelled.
