The earthquake measuring 4.4 on the Ricther Scale near Kamchatka shores has caused a 7-feet tsunami.
The wave hit the coastline near the villages of Krutoberegovo and Ust-Kamchatsk.
No people were injured, and no houses were damaged, "Ekho Moskvy" reports.
More than two thousand people were evacuated urgently from the shore.
The wave hit the coastline and spread 50 ft further onto the land, which resulted in destruction of several non-residential buildings.
After the water lowered, people were able to return to their homes.
It is worth reminding that the most powerful earthquake had occurred at Kamchatka on April, 21, 2006, when it measured 7.7 on the Richter scale. Fortunately, there were no victims. However, several villages of Koryak Autonomous Area were destroyed.
