A tsunami advisory is out for communities along Japan's northern coast after a 6.8 magnitude earthquake hit off the shore of Fukushima.

It was 3 years ago that a quake and subsequent tsunami crippled a nuclear power plant and killed roughly 19,000 people.

Authorities in Japan say the quake struck early Saturday morning.

Part of the statement from Japan’s Meteorological Agency reads, “get out of the water and leave the coast immediately. As the strong current will continue, do not get in the sea or approach coasts until the advisory is cleared,”

The agency expects the tsunami to be about 1 metre high when it reaches land.

The 2011 tsunami was almost 10 metres high.
