Cars pass under a tsunami advisory following an earthquake on Route 45 in Kamaishi city, Iwate Prefecture, northeastern Japan, early Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013. The earthquake of magnitude 7.3 struck early Saturday off Japan's east coast, the U.S. Geological Survey said, triggering small tsunamis but causing no apparent damage. Japan's Meteorological Agency said the quake was an aftershock of the magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami that struck the same area in 2011, killing about 19,000 people and devastating the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant. The advisory reads: "Inside Iwate prefecture tsunami advisory has been issued." (AP Photo/Kyodo News) JAPAN OUT, CREDIT MANDATORY
