A 7.1 magnitude earthquake off the northeastern coast of Japan triggered a tsunami warning overnight. Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald reported:
Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said it had not received reports of any fresh problems at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant after the latest earthquake.
”We are still checking details, but cooling of reactors is continuing,” a TEPCO spokeswoman said.
But the company told work crews near the water to seek higher ground due to the tsunami advisory.
