Powerful Earthquake Hits Japan, Killing Two and Leaving Millions of
Households Without Power
Full story: http://time.com/5388096/earthquake-japan-hokkaido/

(TOKYO) — A powerful earthquake rocked Japan’s northernmost main island
of Hokkaido early Thursday, triggering landslides that crushed homes,
knocking out power and forcing a nuclear power plant to switch to a
backup generator.

The magnitude 6.7 earthquake struck southern Hokkaido at 3:08 a.m. at
the depth of 40 kilometers (24 miles), Japan’s Meteorological Agency
said. The epicenter was east of the city of Tomakomai but the shaking
buckled roads and damaged homes in Hokkaido’s prefectural capital of
Sapporo, with a population of 1.9 million.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference that two
people had been confirmed dead. He did not give details.

The Japanese national broadcaster NHK, citing its own tally, reported
that 125 people were injured and nearly 40 are feared missing.
Hokkaido’s local disaster agency put the number of injured at 48.
