LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The National Tsunami Warning Center says there is no tsunami danger for Hawaii, Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and California following a powerful earthquake off Japan's east coast.
The center says the evaluation is based on information about the quake and historic tsunami records.
The magnitude-7.3 quake struck at 10:10 a.m. PDT Friday, which was early Saturday morning in Tokyo. The quake occurred under the ocean off Honshu, Japan.
Japan's Meteorological Agency raised the tsunami warning for the area of Honshu. But the U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not post warnings for the rest of the Pacific.
The quake hit at 2:10 a.m. Saturday Tokyo time (1710 GMT), the USGS said.
The tremor was felt in Tokyo, some 300 miles (480 kilometers) away.
All but two of Japan's 50 reactors have been offline since the March 2011 magnitude-9.0 earthquake and ensuing tsunami triggered multiple meltdowns and massive radiation leaks at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, about 250 kilometers (160 miles) northeast of Tokyo.
About 19,000 people were killed.
