A magnitude 6.7 earthquake struck Japan's northern island of Hokkaido at about 3 a.m. Thursday morning, triggering massive landslides and widespread power losses that left thousands in the dark and forced a decommissioned nuclear power plant into backup power.
Seven people have been confirmed dead, with 300 injured and about 33 missing on the island of 5.3 million people, according to Reuters.
