powerful offshore earthquake triggered a small, three-foot tsunami in northeast Japan on Friday, jarring the nerves of a nation still recovering from a devastating temblor and 30-foot tsunami that killed more than 15,000 people in 2011. There were no reports of damage, but the 7.3 quake was strong enough to rattle buildings in Tokyo, nearly 300 miles away. Officials in Miyagi, which suffered some of the worst destruction in the 2011 disaster, closed roads and suspended some rail service.
