A powerful earthquake struck early Saturday off the coast of northern Japan — rattling nerves in a region rocked three years ago by a deadly tremor, tsunami and nuclear crisis, though thankfully the latest episode didn’t nearly measure up. The Japan Meteorological Agency at one point issued a tsunami warning, which it later amended to tsunami advisories for coastal regions in Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures. At 6:15 a.m. According to the USGS, the quake was centered off Honshu island some 129 kilometers east-southeast of Namie and 284 kilometers east-northeast of Tokyo.
