Osaka Earthquake and disaster preparedness

The magnitude 6 earthquake that struck North Osaka at 08:00hrs this morning (June 18), resulted in transport disruption, property damage and a significant number of injuries. News channels have also reported three fatalities. On behalf of the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan (BCCJ), I would like to express our condolences to those who have suffered loss, and we wish for the safety and security of the people of Osaka as they deal with aftershocks in the immediate post-earthquake period.
