The quake injured more than 200 people, flattened dozens of wooden buildings and triggered a fire at a nuclear power plant. Fire sirens could be heard in hard-hit Kashiwazaki city, and older buildings were reduced to piles of lumber. Kyodo News agency reported more than 200 people were hurt; broken bones, cuts and bruises were among the injuries.
