    Osaka on alert for aftershocks, landslides

    Monday’s strong earthquake left at least 5 people dead, including a 9-year-old girl and nearly 400 others injured.

    Tremors have been rattling the prefecture ever since. And people are being warned to watch out for rain, which could cause landslides.

    Hundreds of buildings have been damaged across Osaka and 3 other prefectures.

    About 110,000 residences are still without gas. The Meteorological Agency is warning that a similar quake could hit the area in the next week or so.
