A powerful earthquake with a magnitude of 9 struck a wide area of northeastern and eastern Japan including Tokyo last Friday, triggering dozens of fires and a massive tsunami that swept away houses, cars and ships and killed hundreds of people.

The 2:46 p.m. (05:46 GMT) earthquake was the strongest recorded in the quake-prone archipelago by the Japan Meteorological Agency, the governmental agency said, with its magnitude surpassing the 7.9 registered in the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake in Tokyo and its vicinity, which killed more than 100,000 people.

The quake measured the highest level of 7 on the Japanese seismic intensity scale in northern Miyagi, upper-6 in the rest of Miyagi and part of Fukushima, Ibaraki and Tochigi prefectures, lower-6 in part of Iwate, Fukushima, Gunma, Saitama and Chiba prefectures, and upper-5 in a wider area including central Tokyo, part of Kanagawa and Yamanashi.

The strongest recorded earthquake to hit Japan rocked the northeastern coast Friday, triggering a series of tsunami including a 10-meter wall of water that submerged residential areas and farms with muddy streams and washed away scores of people, vehicles and boats in fields and ports in the region.

The 10-meter tsunami was observed at Sendai port in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, at around 3:55 p.m. (6:55 GMT), after the quake with a magnitude of 8.8 rocked the region, local police said.

A tsunami expert at the government-affiliated Port and Airport Research Institute described the tsunami following the 2:46 p.m. (5:46 GMT) quake as ''one of the highest and widest in terms of areas of devastation in the nation's history.''
