NHK has learned that nine people were injured in a strong earthquake in northeastern Japan on Saturday.

The figure as of 11 a.m. Sunday was obtained from police, firefighters and municipal officials.

The quake registered an intensity of 5-plus on the Japanese seismic scale of zero to 7 in Miyagi Prefecture.

In the city of Shiogama in the prefecture, which had jolts with an intensity of 4, workers are trying to remove mud and mortar from a public road in the rain.

Footage from a dashboard camera near the site shows a cliff collapsing immediately after the quake.

The owner of the camera said he was too nervous to sleep. He said he is worried that the rain and aftershocks may cause further landslides.

City officials say there have been no reports of injuries from the landslide.
