At least four people were killed in the latest major earthquake in Japan, triggering tsunami threats.

A strong earthquake hit central Japan, early Monday to be one the earliest major headlines for 2024. The earthquake caused the destruction of a lot of buildings, in addition to power cuts of thousands of homes, and the evacuation of thousands of the coastal areas after threats over tsunami.

The quake was 7.6 magnitude and it triggered waves of about 1 metre along Japan's west coast and South Korea.

After the earthquake, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) issued tsunami warnings for Ishikawa, Niigata and Toyama.

The latest warnings are the biggest since Ishikawa's 2011.
