Cars, ships and buildings were swept away by a wall of water after the 8.9-magnitude earthquake, which struck about 400km (250 miles) north-east of Tokyo in the Miyagi area of Japan

The massive earthquake tremor, measured at 8.9 by the US Geological Survey, hit at 14-46 Japan local time (0546 GMT) at a depth of about 24km.

A tsunami warning was extended across the Pacific to North and South America.

The first waves have rolled thousands of miles to reach Hawaii, but were not expected to cause major damage.

The Red Cross in Geneva warned the waves could be higher than some Pacific islands.

Coastal areas in the Philippines, and other parts of the Pacific have been evacuated ahead of the tsunami’s expected arrival
