According to reports, due to residents reporting the smell of oil in tap water, investigations in Sendai City and Shiogama City in Miyagi Prefecture on the 16th found that the earthquake caused the oil pipeline to rupture and a small amount of oil flowed into the river water, polluting some Domestic water in the area. On the same day, the two places stopped water supply to three water plants, and about 18,600 households were without water.

It is reported that in Japan, except for particularly severe earthquakes, most of the physical injuries caused by the collapse of buildings in most earthquakes are not much. The strong earthquake caused 155 injuries. In Fukushima Prefecture, 20 houses completely collapsed.

The report pointed out that, rather than the deaths and injuries directly caused by the earthquake, what should be prevented is the impact of the interruption of hydropower, transportation and other infrastructure after the earthquake.
