Six dead as quake, tsunami hit Japan

This was the huge quake we expected for years'

Tokyo: Some 200 to 300 bodies have been found in the tsunami-hit coast city Sendai, following an 8.9-magnitude earthquake that hit Japan's northeastern Honshu island Friday, according to Tokyo-based Kyodo news agency.

Over 300 homes were knocked down by the quake-triggered tsunami in Iwate Prefecture, Xinhua quoted Kyodo News as stating.

The tsunami reached up to five kilometres inland in Fukushima Prefecture, the report said.

A state of atomic power emergency was declared at a nuclear power plant in Fukushima but no radiation leaks have been detected.

According to Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano, some cooling functions of the plant were not working and one reactor cannot be cooled down. Local authorities thus called on a total of 2,000 residents living in the neighbourhood to evacuate, local media reported.
