A seismic event of considerable magnitude, measuring 7.5 on the Richter scale, shook western Japan on Monday, as reported by both the United States Geological Survey and the Japan Meteorological Agency. In response to this powerful earthquake, tsunami warnings have been activated for the coastal regions of western Japan, prompting urgent evacuation advisories.
Initial reports indicate that the first waves, reaching heights of 1.2 meters (4 feet) and below, have already made landfall in several areas along the western coast of Japan. The city of Noto remains under a significant tsunami warning, with anticipated waves reaching approximately 5 meters. Authorities are actively monitoring the situation and advising residents to stay vigilant and adhere to evacuation protocols.
