Japan's Battle Against Earthquakes

Japan's Battle Against Earthquakes

The Aftermath

Japan is currently facing the aftermath of a series of earthquakes that occurred on New Year's Day. With at least 30 confirmed deaths and the possibility of that number increasing, the country is bracing for more aftershocks. Rescue crews are struggling to reach the hardest-hit areas, especially in the Ishikawa prefecture, where the strongest earthquake had a magnitude of 7.6. While over 30,000 homes were left without power, the government has assured that nuclear power plants were not affected. The Army has been called in to assist with rescue operations, and nearly 100,000 people have been ordered to leave their homes.

The Fires and Damage

As tremors shook Japan's West Coast, the coastal area of Wajima in the Ishikawa region experienced fires that damaged dozens of stores and houses. Firefighters have been working tirelessly to extinguish the blazes in the center of Wajima. Unfortunately, the death toll is expected to rise as rescue teams reach the worst affected areas. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida reported that helicopter surveys have confirmed significant damage, including building collapses and fires. With the displacement of almost 100,000 people, shelters like gyms have become temporary homes.

The Ongoing Rescue Efforts

The Japanese Meteorological Agency has warned that more strong shocks could hit in the coming days. This presents a challenge for rescue teams as they battle against time to reach isolated areas. However, access to these areas has been hindered by damaged roads and blocked routes due to landslides. While the cancellation of the tsunami warning has allowed access from the sea, many roads are still impassable. Helicopter images have been the main source of information, as news outlets are unable to reach the affected sites. The full extent of the catastrophe is yet to be determined as information continues to trickle in.

The Impact on Japan

Japan has been significantly affected by these earthquakes, particularly in the six prefectures that experienced intense shaking. With a level seven intensity on the scale, the ground shook violently, leaving many residents shocked by the unprecedented experience. While this disaster is not on the same scale as the 2011 earthquake that devastated the country, it is still considered one of the larger ones. Japan is accustomed to earthquakes, landslides, and natural disasters in general, but this event stands out due to its magnitude.

The Risk of Aftershocks

In the coming days, there is still a high risk of aftershocks. The meteorological agency has warned that another level seven earthquake could hit the region. The frequency of earthquakes in the past 24 hours has been intense, with frequent warnings being sent out to mobile phones. Fortunately, Japan has good building standards, which have minimized the overall damage. However, older houses with heavy roofs have collapsed, highlighting the ongoing issue. As the aftershocks continue, the resilience of Japan's infrastructure will be tested.
