Earthquakes in central Japan and off the Andaman Islands in eastern India on Tuesday prompted tsunami warnings for parts of the Pacific coast and the Indian Ocean, which were later cancelled.

REUTERS - A tsunami warning issued in the wake of a magnitude 7.6 earthquake off India's Andaman Islands has been cancelled, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.
 

The quake early on Tuesday had triggered a tsunami alert for India, Myanmar, Indonesia, Thailand and Bangladesh. More
