Quake update

A tsunami alert has been issued after a earthquake with a magnitude of 7.3 (7.0) struck off southern Japan.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) said the quake struck at 0531 (2031 GMT) 84km (52 miles) east of Naha, on the island of Okinawa, Reuters news agency reports.
The quake, only 29km (18 miles) below the seabed, is pretty dangerous and can very well have created a tsunami.
