Japan earthquake triggers landslides, houses crushed

Sep 06, 2018 11:38 IST

A nuclear power plant has been switched to an emergency generator as a powerful earthquake in Japan's northern island of Hokkaido triggered landslides leading to houses being destroyed and nearly 3 million homes without power. The 6.7 strong earthquake though has not posed a Tsunami risk. Japan is on the Ring of Fire arc of volcanoes and has 20 percent of the world's earthquakes of magnitude 6 or greater.
