The Japanese coast has been hit by small tsunami waves a day after an 8.3 magnitude earthquake hit Chilean capital Santiago.

According to ABC News, the Japan Meteorological Agency said a wave of 80 centimeters (31 inches) was recorded at the port of Kuji in Iwate Prefecture, part of the same northeast region that was hit by a much larger and deadly tsunami in March 2011.

No injury or damages have been reported from the waves, but some coastal towns have issued evacuation advisories as a precautionary step.

The northern Japanese coasts, especially those in Iwate, have been affected by tsunami induced by earthquakes near Chile in the past.
