SINGAPORE: Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong conveyed his condolences to Japan on Thursday (4 Jan) following a 7.6-magnitude earthquake that struck its western coast on New Year’s Day, claiming a minimum of 84 lives.

In an official letter released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), PM Lee expressed deep sorrow to Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida regarding the devastation caused by the Noto Peninsula earthquake.

“I was deeply saddened by the loss of lives and damage caused by the Noto Peninsula Earthquake on New Year’s Day. ”

“On behalf of the Government of Singapore, I extend my heartfelt condolences to the families who have lost loved ones in this disaster,” PM Lee expressed, also extending wishes for a swift recovery to those injured.

“Our thoughts are with you and the people of Japan during this difficult time,” he added.

PM Lee further offered Singapore’s assistance in the relief efforts, stating, “Please let me know if Singapore can be of any assistance in the relief efforts..”

On 1 January, the earthquake centred near Ishikawa Prefecture’s Noto Peninsula initiated a series of catastrophic events, triggering tsunami warnings, causing extensive destruction, and prompting immediate evacuations.

The aftermath resulted in collapsed houses, outbreaks of fires, and the mobilization of military personnel to assist in rescue efforts.

According to the United States Geological Survey, this seismic event was the most powerful in the area in over forty years.

Japanese PM Fumio Kishida emphasized at a conference the need for sustained efforts in rescuing individuals affected by the disaster, stressing the importance of continuing rescue operations even beyond the initial 72-hour window.

Current reports indicate that while 156 individuals have been rescued, at least 179 people remain unaccounted for, as confirmed by Japanese authorities.

As the crisis persists, 30 villages remain inaccessible three days after the disaster, according to Ishikawa prefecture authorities.

Despite some aid reaching the affected areas, numerous evacuees are still grappling with severe shortages of essential supplies such as food, water, electricity, and communication services.

These challenges are exacerbated by harsh weather conditions and freezing temperatures, as highlighted by the authorities.

On 2 January, Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) confirmed that there were no reported incidents affecting Singaporeans due to the devastating earthquake.

The MFA has reached out to e-registered Singaporeans in the affected regions, particularly in Ishikawa, Niigata, Toyama, and Yamagata prefectures, where tsunami warnings were issued.

“The Singapore Government extends condolences to Japan and the families affected by the Ishikawa earthquake,” stated the MFA.

Singaporeans in Japan are advised to defer travel to the affected regions and remain vigilant, taking all necessary precautions for their safety and following the instructions of local authorities.

In light of possible aftershocks, the MFA strongly encourages Singaporeans in or traveling to Japan to e-register and purchase comprehensive travel insurance.
