7.4 earthquake hits Japan with one meter tsunami wave at Fukushima nuclear plant
TOKYO, JAPAN,Nov22 :The northeastern Japan was hit by a powerful earthquake with a magnitude of 6.9 on the richter scale on Tuesday triggering a one-metre (3.3-foot) tsunami wave that crashed into the coast at the stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant.
