A Powerful Earthquake in Japan with a Magnitude of 5.1 on October, 9
Specialists’ predictions about a new earthquake in Japan have come true. On October 9, closer to noon, an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.1 was recorded. We remind you that the earthquake with a magnitude of 5.9 was on Thursday, and according to the latest report, there were about 30 victims.
A new earthquake was no significant damage. The only complaint that came from residents of the affected areas was the power outage. Although it was a weaker push than on Thursday, many residents were scared and were sharing pictures and videos on social media about it.
Japan is a region that is often subject to similar earthquakes due to the Philippine and Pacific plates. And the 2011 disaster serves as an unpleasant reminder of the need to strengthen all buildings from destruction and conduct regular instruction on how the population behaves during a disaster.
