7.3-Magnitude Earthquake Hits Japan

Residents near Japan's Fukushima Prefecture coastline are scrambling to reach higher ground after a 7.3-magnitude earthquake rattled through the area. Officials announced a tsunami advisory minutes after the quake, but said that there is "no widespread tsunami threat" at the moment. The epicenter of the earthquake, which apparently left the nearby Onagawa nuclear power plant unharmed, was less than 300 miles from Tokyo.
