Deadly Earthquake Hits Osaka, Japan

REPORT • Jun 2018

A child and two elderly men have been killed after a 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck the Japanese city of Osaka at around 0800hrs local time on 18 June 2018. Nearly 350 people have been confirmed to have suffered injuries. No tsunami warning has been issued and there has been no disruption to activities at nuclear power plants in the region, allaying fears of a situation similar to the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. A disruption to transport has been reported with trains in western Japan initially being suspended at 1130hrs local time. Shinkansen bullet train services were also cancelled but have since continued with delays and disruption. Local lines were also affected largely in Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, Hyogo and Shiga prefectures. Damage has been reported to buildings and roads in Osaka, Hyogo, and Nara Prefectures. Flights have been disrupted at Osaka Airport due to damage at the terminal building. More than 1,300 people have been evacuated in Osaka and more than 100,000 are without power or water in the northern half of the prefecture. Takatsuki city was the area most severely hit.
