About a week after New Zealand was hit with a 7.8 Magnitude Earthquake, and Argentina was hit with a 6.2, Japan has been struck by a 6.9 Magnitude Earthquake near Fukushima, the same region slammed in 2011 with a major earthquake that spawned a massive tsunami that killed almost 19,000 people.

The first tsunami wave from the latest quake measured about 2 feet and rolled into Onahama port in Iwaki City in Fukushima.

Tsunami advisories were issued for a wide area of Japan's Pacific coast.

The U.S. Geological Survey, which put the quake at magnitude 6.9, described it as having moved along a lateral slip.  According to the USGS, quakes along faults that move laterally don't create the vertical movement associated with large tsunamis.
