Extensive damage and more deaths than the powerful quake last May.

Earthquakes are something I definitely don’t miss after leaving Japan four years ago. Hopefully the death toll of this quake doesn’t grow any higher and the government gets behind those affected and gives them the support they need.

What a crappy way to kick off the New Year. Condolences to those who suffered losses and fingers crossed they manage to rescue those in need of assistance and offer them the necessary support.

Incredibly sad, could see from the devastation that the death toll would mount.

Last time I looked, NHK had the toll up to 48. It will surely go up, as more are discovered under the rubble, or succumb to their injuries in the hospital. So sad.

Not to diminish the loss of those who perished, each one devastating to their loved ones, it could have been much worse from a 7.6 magnitude quake. Much worse. (ex: over 6000 died in the Great Hanshin Earthquake with a 7 magnitude.)

Yes. While it is terrible for those caught in it, the Noto Hantou is a fairly rural part of Japan, so fewer people would have been caught up in it.

And while there are quite a lot of older buildings there, it has been 30 years sine the Great Hanshin earthquake so on average the buildings should have better earthquake resilience.

JP raised from many difficulties in past, 頑張ろう!

Pray for speedy recovery.

But just a question is this related to 2025 日本沈没 theory ?
