A fire also broke out in Mashiki, a town of about 34,000 people near the epicenter of the quake. NHK showed footage of firefighters tackling a blaze at a building.
Some 16,000 households in the area were without electricity and 38,000 homes had no gas supplies in Kumamoto, Japanese media reported.
At around 1503 GMT, another tremor struck the region, according to the USGS. It was initially measured at magnitude 6.4, before being revised down to 5.9. Again, there was no tsunami warning.
