Japan tsunami warnings lifted after large earthquake

Tsunami warnings have been lifted after a 7.3 magnitude quake struck 250 kilometres off the eastern coast of Japan.

Tremors were felt as far away as Tokyo, but fears for the Miyagi region, the area which was devastated by a massive magnitude 9 earthquake last year, were unfounded as a one metre wave failed to cause any major damage.
