Japan’s southwestern Kyushu island suffered from a magnitude-6.2 earthquake Thursday night. Although a quake of that magnitude is usually not severe, it occurred just 10 kilometers under the surface, which is why the damage has been devastating. The quake left about 9 people dead and 800 people injured, 50 suffering severe injures. Japanese sources claim that 44,449 people have evacuated the area. The director of the Japan Meteorological Agency’s earthquake division, Gen Aoki, has warned the island that more aftershocks will most likely occur within the next week. This would result in more building collapsing, especially those that experienced severe damage during the immediate quake last night.
