Japan's weather agency has issued a tsunami warning after 155 earthquakes. The agency has appealed to the people living in coastal areas not to go to their homes for the time being. According to media reports, about one thousand people have taken shelter at the army base. The Japanese Prime Minister says that he has instructed the officials to send relief material to the spot soon and ensure rescue. According to media reports, eight people have died due to the earthquake.

 

PM Kishida held a meeting, gave instructions to officials

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida spoke to the media after a disaster response meeting on Monday night. He said that I had instructed the officers and employees associated with the rescue force and disaster management to reach the spot as soon as possible. Right now the cold is at its peak. I have instructed officials to use aircraft, and ships and immediately supply water, food, blankets, heating oil, gasoline, and other essential items.

 

 

Buildings in coastal areas collapsed

An official of the Meteorological Department said that on Monday, 155 earthquakes occurred one after the other in Japan, out of which the intensity of two earthquakes was 7.6 and 6. At the same time, the intensity of 153 tremors has been measured more than three. Buildings along Japan's west coast collapsed due to powerful earthquakes measuring 7.6 and 6. So far eight people have died due to the earthquake.

 

The US Geological Survey (USGS) says the earthquake, which struck Ishikawa Prefecture on the main island of Honshu, had a magnitude of 7.5. At the same time, Japanese officials say that the intensity of the earthquake in Ishikawa was 7.6. According to Japanese officials, waves four feet high were rising at Wajima port.

 

Electricity failure in more than 32 thousand houses

Government spokesman Yoshimasa Hayashi said the earthquake caused a fire in Wajima city of Ishikawa Prefecture and more than 32,000 homes lost power. The meteorological agency initially issued a major tsunami warning for Ishikawa. Also issued a low-level tsunami warning or advisory for the rest of the west coast of Honshu, as well as Hokkaido, the country's northernmost main island. Hayashi stressed that it is important for people to move away from coastal areas. Every minute counts. Please move to a safe area immediately. Several hours later the warning was changed to a regular tsunami, meaning the sea could still generate waves up to 3 meters (10 ft). Apart from this, tsunami warning was also issued for parts of North Korea and Russia.

 

America is in touch

US President Joe Biden said in a statement that his administration is in contact with Japanese officials and stands ready to provide any necessary assistance to the Japanese people. Japan is an extremely earthquake-prone country, but was hit by a major earthquake in March 2011. A tsunami warning of Monday's magnitude had not been issued since the nuclear plant malfunctioned.
