Japan earthquake and other disasters have hit Japan tremendously and have recently experienced a tremor on Wednesday.
Many from Japan have been either wooden up by the extreme tremor or have gotten serious injuries as a result of the tremor. Thus far, only two people have died as a result of the tremor.
Japan earthquake strikes just before midnight
According to reports by BBC, the earthquake took place right before midnight. Many residents could not stand upright during the rough tremor and were at times overcome by fallen objects.
In 2011, the earthquake was so bad that it actually destroyed the nuclear plant that’s a resource for energy. This time around, the earthquake actually hit the same area but reports show that the nuclear plant is safe this time. The Japan earthquake still caused much damage.
At least four deaths were reported so far
As reported by CNN, a bullet train derailed near Fukushima, but no injuries were reported. The passengers were trapped inside for at least four hours before they were able to get out of the train.
So far, there are only reported to be four deaths but more counts of it are expected to follow. The number thereof is still uncertain. Additionally, the Japan earthquake left 100s injured.
Initially, the Japan earthquake was said to be 73.4 meters wide but was changed to 74 a while after. One man who unfortunately lost his life was aged 60 from the city of Sona.
Right now, people from affected areas have been urged to stay away from the coastal areas as a tsunami quickly ensured after the earthquake. Everyone has also been warned about mudslides.
As a result of the Japan earthquake, thousands of homes were left without water as well as electricity. However, most of this was restored except for the heavily affected areas.
Some areas have also reported a rise in sea level but no threats were reported.
