At 3:07 am September 6, 2018, 6.7-magnitude earthquake struck the Northern Japanese Island of Hokkaido. The epicenter was in Iburi region. Great damage occurred in a considerably wide range. Not only earthquakes but also blackouts occurred in Hokkaido at the same time.

There were a lot of tourists in trouble with that. So I’d like to pick up information on earthquakes, traffic, blackouts etc in English.
