Earthquake in Japan

A magnitude 7.6 earthquake struck Japan on 1 January, leaving 48 dead and destroying hundreds of buildings.

7.6 is a major earthquake on the Richter scale, and the initial earthquake has been followed by many smaller tremors, reaching as high as 4.9 magnitude.

The earthquake occurred at 07:10 UTC, in the Noto Peninsula of Ishikawa Prefecture. Hundreds of buildings were destroyed by the earthquake or by fires that followed. Roads and power infrastructure were also damaged, leaving over 30,000 people without power and affecting rescue efforts.

Rescue operations have continued since the earthquake, and over 57,000 people have been evacuated so far. The death toll may rise over the next few days as the search continues, but thousands of emergency responders are working through the debris to find any survivors.

The area continues to remain on alert for the impact of further tremors, which may continue for up to a week.

Tsunami warnings were in place following the earthquake, but have since been lifted.
