Print Friendly, PDF & Email

As the death toll continued to rise from two earthquakes that struck Japan within two days — killing 32 and injuring at least 1,500 — the country had dispatched 20,000 army troops and other rescuers to find and save residents trapped under rubble as rains and mudslides pummeled affected areas.

The latest death toll from Saturday’s quake that shook the Kumamoto region on the southwestern island of Kyushu was 22. On Thursday night, Kyushu was also hit by a quake that left 10 dead.Of the 1,500 people injured, 80 of them had serious injuries, said chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga. Nearly 91,000 people were forced from their homes.

Officials said 400,000 households were in need of drinking water after water systems failed and 200,000 homes were without electricity.
