The earthquake also caused the country’s worst nuclear disaster – three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant melted, releasing radioactive materials into the air and more than 100,000 people were evacuated from the area.

Kato said some 830,000 homes in the Kanto region also include Tokyo, and about 90,000 homes in the Tohoku area are without Saturday night electricity.

Kato also said that Prime Minister Yoshihida Suga has instructed the government to survey the damage caused by the earthquake, make rescue efforts, where necessary, and make information available to the public on time.
