Several earthquakes struck northeast Japan and Tokyo on Wednesday, with authorities issuing a tsunami warning in the region that was devastated in last year’s quake, according the U.S. Geological Survey.

The strongest quake, a magnitude-6.9, struck off the coast and generated a small tsunami and prompted authorities to evacuate residents on the coast, according to AFP.

Later, the Japan Meteorological Agency removed the tsunami warning. There were no reports of injury or damage.

There were also no reports of any damage to Japan’s nuclear facilities.

Japan on Sunday observed the anniversary of the massive earthquake that struck last March. It was also marked around the world with large demonstrations against nuclear power, because of the damage to the Fukushima Daiichi plant.
