Quotes

"There are fears that relatively large earthquakes will occasionally occur in the ocean area where aftershocks of the great earthquake continue. The aftershock activity has been steadily declining on a long-term basis. But aftershocks, accompanied by tsunamis, will still occur" he said according to the Japan Today
"We have lifted the tsunami advisory, but do not approach coastlines for now as there may be a change in sea levels" an agency official said
"Our temporary breakwater that was newly built at the plant is high enough to block a one-metre tsunami" he added
