Strong quake hits central Japan, with tsunami warning issued

 




TOKYO (AFP) – A major 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck central Japan early Tuesday, with a tsunami warning issued in the region, the meteorological agency said.

The quake hit at 5:07 am (2007 GMT) at a depth of 20 kilometres (12 miles) in the Pacific off Shizuoka prefecture, west of Tokyo, the Agency said.

Around 20 percent of the world's most powerful earthquakes strike Japan.
