The Japan Meteorological Agency is warning that another powerful earthquake could hit the Noto region on the Sea of Japan in the coming week.

The agency issued the warning after the region in Ishikawa Prefecture experienced a quake registering lower 6 on the Japanese seismic scale of zero to 7 on Sunday afternoon.

Agency official Kamaya Noriko said there is still a high risk of building collapses or mudslides. She urged people to stay away from danger.
