Reuters – The Japanese government set up 350 temporary shelters in Osaka prefecture after a 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck the region on Monday. According to the incomplete statistics, more than 1,700 people are now living in the shelters after the earthquake.

A shelter set in a primary school in Ibaraki, Osaka Prefecture, settles 37 people of 14 households.”We provide water and blanket to people here. We also get remaining lunch bread of local primary schools and distribute bread to them,” said a local government staff.

Some volunteers also made onigiri (rice balls) at the shelter, bringing warmth to the affected people. People at the shelter said they felt strong tremors this time and their houses suffered damage of varying degrees. They thought living at the shelter is relatively safe.

So far, at least four people have been confirmed dead and 350 others injured due to the earthquake.
