3 dead, 200 hurt as strong quake jolts Osaka

AFP

TOKYO: A powerful earthquake rocked Japan’s second city of Osaka yesterday, killing three people including a nine-year-old girl and injuring more than 200, according to an official tally, reports AFP.

Television images showed buildings swaying and burst pipes spewing water after the quake, which struck at the height of rush hour in the city of around two million.

However, there was no large-scale destruction and no tsunami warning issued after the earthquake, although commuters were stranded and tens of thousands were left without power.

Among the casualties was a nine-year-old girl who died in the city of Takatsuki north of Osaka, reportedly trapped by a collapsed wall following the 5.3-magnitude quake.

Local officials told AFP that the other two dead were an 80-year-old man—killed by a collapsing wall—and a 84-year-old man trapped under a bookcase in his home.
