A tsunami alert was issued this afternoon after a 7.3 magnitude earthquake off of the Fukushima coast.
The BBC reported:

Japan has issued a tsunami advisory for the Fukushima area – where the crippled nuclear plant is located – after a powerful quake in the Pacific Ocean.

The Japan Meteorological Agency said a small tsunami – up to one metre (3.3ft) – could reach the eastern coast, but no damage was expected.

Japanese TV later said a weak 30cm tsunami had reached the coast.

The 7.1 magnitude quake struck at a depth of 10km (six miles), about 320km off Japan’s eastern coast.

The US Geological Survey said it was a 7.3 magnitude earthquake.

The JMA issued a “yellow” advisory for Fukushima and also the prefectures of Iwate, Miyagi, Ibaraki and parts of Chiba, saying tsunami waves could reach 0.2-1m.
