Strong earthquake hits Japan

TOKYO – A 6.8-magnitude earthquake has hit Japan’s northern coast near the nuclear power plant crippled in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Japan’s Meteorological Agency said the quake struck early Saturday six miles below the sea surface off the coast of Fukushima, northeast of Tokyo.

The agency issued a tsunami advisory along Japan's northern coast.

Public broadcaster NHK said the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant is checking whether there is any damage from the quake.

The 2011 disaster killed about 19,000 people. That disaster also triggered multiple meltdowns at the Fukushima plant. More than 100,000 people are still unable to go home because of fear of radiation contamination from the plant.
