Japan’s West Coast Rattled by Tsunami-Inducing Tremors, Sparking Intense Warnings

A series of powerful Tsunami like earthquakes, totaling approximately 20, have unleashed havoc in the Noto region along central Japan’s west coast. The first tremor, measuring 5.7 on the Richter scale, struck at 4:06 p.m. local time, triggering a catastrophic sequence. Just four minutes later, a massive 7.6-magnitude quake shook the region, followed by a 6.1 magnitude temblor at 4:18 p.m. The onslaught continued with a 4.5 magnitude quake at 4:23 p.m., a 4.6 magnitude shock at 4:29 p.m., and a 4.8 magnitude quake at 4:32 p.m.

Residents were left in a state of panic as homes crumbled, and tsunami warnings were issued, urging people to seek higher ground. The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) reported the first tsunami waves, measuring around four feet high, hitting Ishikawa prefecture’s Wajima port approximately an hour after the initial quakes. Terrifyingly, more tsunami alerts, some predicting waves as high as 16 feet, loomed over Ishikawa, intensifying the nightmare.

NHK Urges Urgent Evacuation Amid Tsunami Threat Following Japan’s Powerful Quakes

National broadcaster NHK’s alarming directive urges residents in the affected region to abandon their belongings and swiftly relocate to higher ground as authorities issue warnings about potential hazardous tsunami waves within 300 km of the earthquake epicenter. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii emphasizes the possibility of devastating waves, while the Japan Meteorological Agency predicts waves reaching up to five meters in height.

Power companies overseeing nuclear plants in the vicinity claim routine checks reveal no immediate issues, seemingly reassuring the public about the plants’ safety.

Smoke Billows and Chaos Ensues: Rescue Efforts Underway Amidst Tsunami Warnings

Reports emerge of smoke billowing from Wajima city, with at least six homes damaged and people trapped inside, though no confirmed deaths or injuries are reported. As rescue efforts, including Japan’s military, are underway, bullet trains are halted, highways closed, and burst water pipes contribute to the chaos.
