Japan issues Tsunami warnings

Hazardous tsunami waves are possible along coastlines within a 300-kilometer (186-mile) radius of a 6.9-magnitude earthquake that hit southeastern Taiwan on Sunday, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) has said.

Japan’s Meteorological Agency has issued a tsunami warning for Miyako island in the East China Sea following the quake, which hit the Yujing district in rural Taiwan and had a depth of 10 kilometers.

Tsunami is a long, high sea wave caused by an earthquake or other disturbance.
