    Update: The tsunami warning was lifted around noon. You can see updates on NPR’s live blog.

    Nearly a month after a 9.0 magnitude quake struck Japan’s northeastern coast, the region was hit Thursday night with a 7.4 magnitude quake.

    NPR and the Associated Press report the quake hit 25 miles underwater off the coast of Miyagi prefecture, and a warning has been issued for a two-meter wave. No immediate cases of damage have been reported.
