A strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.8 jolted northeastern Japan off Fukushima prefecture on Friday and a 50cm tsunami advisory was issued for the coast of Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

The tsunami advisory was issued for the coastal areas that suffered severe damage from a massive quake and tsunami in March.
