Japan has lifted a tsunami warning for its northeastern coast nearly four hours after a powerful offshore earthquake.
A tsunami advisory for waves of up to 1 meter remains in place for much of the Pacific coast.
The earlier warning was for waves of up to 3 meters. The Japan Meteorological Agency had urged residents to flee quickly to higher ground.
The largest wave recorded was 1.4 meters at Sendai Bay.
