A strong earthquake struck Saturday off northern Japan, triggering a tsunami advisory for a part of the northern coast.

Footage captured Japan's public NHK television newsroom shaking as the quake struck.

The US Geological Survey put the strength of the quake at magnitude 7.0 and depth at 54 kilometers (33.5 miles).

The shaking started just before 6:10 p.m (0910 GMT).

The earthquake was centered off the coast of Miyagi prefecture, in the country’s rugged northeast, which was heavily damaged during the huge earthquake and tsunami of 2011.
