7.3 earthquake rumors are coming out of Japan this morning. An estimated magnitude 7.3 earthquake has struck near the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan, causing concerns that it could have been damaged further. According to a report from Friday (Oct. 25), the breaking news from FOX News is that tsunami warnings have been issued already. The early prediction is that the wave will only be about three feet in height.
On the CNN live breaking news, they are suggesting that this shaking is an aftershock of what happened just over a year ago, despite the length of time that has elapsed between. There are no early reports of damage in the area, but it was hard enough shaking to wake everyone up. Paula Hancocks was reporting live from the area to CNN and wasn't stating that she has heard much about what had taken place.
This is considered breaking news as it just took place in the early morning hours in Japan, but there could be more reports coming in from it soon. The good news for people in the area is that it took place in the ocean to the East of Japan, meaning some of the pressure was diluted. This 7.3 earthquake report will be updated as more information is revealed.
It is being reported that the event took place at about 2:10 a.m. local time about 170 miles off the coast. No damage has been reported yet, but the Fukushima plant ordered workers near the cost to move to higher ground.
