Georgy Glukhov said the woman was killed when a section of a building fell on her as the local cultural center was being evacuated.
The temblor, which measured 6-7 on the Richter scale, also generated two tsunami waves 20-30 centimeters high on the Japanese island of Hokkaido, the local meteorological service reported.
No damage or injuries were reported as a result, and a tsunami warning was cancelled at 2:30 p.m. local time (9:30 a.m. Moscow time).
