An earthquake shook southern Japan today. At least two humans died and more were injuried. The quake had a magnitude of 6.4 on the Richter scale. Many houses and buildings were left without electricity and gas.

The nuclear reactors close to the quake were not affected and those that were running are still running, three others were already shut down for regular maintenance. This is important, when we remeber that the earthquake with following tsunami forced the Fukushima nuclear reactors out of operation in 2011. A lot of people died due to that tsunami, luckily none because of the damages done by the tsunami on the reactors.

I hope the dogs in the area are alright.
