Japan's northeastern Tohoku region boosted bus and flight services Monday as railway connections remained disrupted following a magnitude 7.3 earthquake Saturday that injured more than 150 people, cutting power and water in some areas.

Many homes in the hardest-hit prefectures of Miyagi and Fukushima were still without water Monday and businesses already battered by the novel coronavirus pandemic were struggling to resume operations.

Around 950,000 households were left without electricity at one point, but power had been restored by Sunday afternoon.
