"A minor tsunami hit large swaths of the Tohoku region early Saturday, including in a city near the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, after a strong 6.8-magnitude earthquake struck off the country’s Pacific coast.
There were no immediate reports of damage following the quake and tsunami, however, with authorities lifting all advisories roughly two hours later.
A Meteorological Agency official told a televised news conference that the quake appeared to be an aftershock of the massive March 11, 2011, earthquake.
Much of the coastline covered by the advisories Saturday is still recovering from the 2011 quake and tsunami disaster that killed more than 18,000 people and triggered a triple-meltdown crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 plant.
A minor tsunami of 20 cm (7.8 inches) was observed in Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture, and Ofunato, Iwate Prefecture, the Meteorological Agency said Saturday.
Waves of 10 cm were also monitored in the city of Soma, roughly 40 km (25 miles) north of the Fukushima No. 1 plant, the agency said. The city suffered severe damage in the 2011 disaster."

"Washington, D.C.— Today, Congressmen Steve Israel (D-Huntington) and Peter King (R-Seaford) and Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano announced their opposition to the news that the Administration is considering a former Grumman site to house the influx of unaccompanied children who are entering U.S. borders illegally. The site is near a New York State Superfund site. They have been in touch with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the General Services Administration (GSA) to express their concern and disapproval.
Rep. Israel said, “Unaccompanied children coming into our borders is a humanitarian crisis, but housing them in an industrial warehouse near a Superfund site is not a humanitarian solution. I will continue working with Rep. King and County Executive Mangano to ensure that HHS and GSA rethink their consideration of this site.”
