6.3 QUAKE STRIKES JAPAN

      A strong 6.3-magnitude earthquake hit western Japan early on Saturday, injuring at least 24 people and destroying some houses, officials and reports said. Japan’s meteorological agency, which earlier reported the quake was measured at magnitude 6.0, revised the seismic reading to magnitude 6.3. There was no risk of a tsunami, it said. The quake struck at 5:33 am (2033 GMT on Friday) near Awaji island in the Seto Inland Sea southwest of the city of Kobe, the agency said, also revising the depth of the focus at 15 kilometres (9.3 miles). The US Geological Survey also measured the tremor at 6.0 but at an even shallower depth of five kilometres. It was the biggest earthquake to hit western Hyogo prefecture since 1995, when a 7.2-magnitude quake destroyed its port city of Kobe and killed more than 6,000 people. But the damage was limited on Saturday, the National Police Agency said, although at least 24 people were injured. An 82-year-old woman in Fukui prefecture suffered a broken leg after she fell to the ground, while another woman, 74, in Hyogo prefecture broke her hip bone, a police agency official said. Japan’s public broadcaster NHK showed footage of flattened brick walls and one house where all the roof tiles had collapsed to the ground. Local train services were suspended for safety checks, while Kansai airport in Osaka Bay was temporarily closed, NHK said. Kansai Electric Power said there was nothing untoward at its Oi nuclear power plant, currently the only one in Japan with reactors online.

DEADLY 5.5 QUAKE In IRAN

   An earthquake measuring 5.5 in magnitude struck eastern Iran on Wednesday, killing eight people and injuring 12 others as emergency teams scrambled to rescue others and treat the injured. People fled their homes as the quake struck and brought walls and buildings down. But others were left trapped under rubble in villages across the district of Zohan in South Khorasan province. “Eight people have been killed in the earthquake area and one person is missing. Unfortunately a number of those injured have lost their lives in the last few hours,” South Khorasan’s crisis management director Mohammad Ali Akhundi as saying. “Homes have sustained damage and people are out in public places and they need the means to keep themselves warm because of the cold,” he said. Iran’s Red Crescent Society despatched 15 rescue teams to the affected areas to search for people stuck under the debris and doctors in the provincial capital of Birjand were on alert to treat those hurt. Rescue units of Iran’s national Basij militia also joined operations, despatching three medical teams. Emergency workers had reached some areas and the number of confirmed dead could rise, Tehran’s deputy emergency services director Mohammad Sarvar said. Two villages appeared to have sustained the worst of the damage including the village of Sharaj where five people were killed, Mehr news agency quoted district governor Farhad Falahati as saying. “We have what we need to help but landslides especially on the route to Sharaj have stopped the relief supplies from getting there,” he added. At least 12 aftershocks have been registered since the quake struck at 2038 local time (1708 GMT), the Iranian Seismological Center said. The centre said the epicenter was 42 km from the town of Qayen, the heart of Iran’s saffron-growing region, one of the country’s major non-oil exports. The USGS said the quake, which it initially recorded as magnitude 6.0, was very shallow at a depth of 3.3. miles. It located the epicenter as 48 miles north-northeast of Birjand, near the border with Afghanistan.
