TSUNAMI WARNING AFTER 6 6 MAGNITUDE QUAKE IN JAPAN

For more WORLD NEWS "SUBSCRIBE" US TOKYO: A tsunami as big as one metre (three feet) was reportedly forecast to hit islands in Japan's far south today after a 6.6 magnitude earthquake struck off eastern Taiwan. National broadcaster NHK said waves were possible on several islands in the southern Okinawa chain after a very shallow quake centred on Yonaguni in the southwest, near Taiwan. Witnesses said buildings swayed in Taipei but there was no visible damage in the Taiwan capital. "We are issuing warnings via the radio," Satoshi Shimoji of the Miyako City government told NHK. "We want residents to get as far as possible from the sea," he said. NHK said the tsunami an irregular wave that alters the sea level, and not necessarily a huge event is believed to have already arrived at remote Yonaguni, although no details were yet available.
