Massive Tsunami Hits Japan After 8.8 Magnitude Earthquake

A devastating tsunami causes major damage in north-eastern Japan, after a massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake strikes off the coast, one of the largest in it’s history.

The earthquake struck off Japan, shaking buildings in Tokyo for several minutes and forcing people out of their homes.

Japan issued the most serious tsunami warning they can issue, saying waves as high as 20ft could strike the coast near Miyagi prefecture. Other waves have already made the shore.

Initially reports a quake of magnitude 7.9 but have since been upgraded to an 8.8 magnitude quake, that struck about 250 miles from Tokyo at a depth of 20 miles.

Tsunami warnings have been issued and are in effect.
