Posted by feww on January 19, 2016

Much of Japan hammered by high wind, giant waves and heavy snowfall

At least 9,700 people have been ordered to evacuate Nemuro, a town in the northern Japanese prefecture of Hokkaido, as heavy snowfall, high wind and giant waves plagued the region leaving more than 50,000 residents without power, the media reported Tuesday.

Warnings have also been issued to residents in the region concerning the threat of flooding as high waves batter the coastal areas putting some 4,000 families at risk, Kyodo News reported.

At least 169 people were injured in the Kanto area, which includes Tokyo, after heavy snow blanketed eastern and northern Japan early on Monday.

Heavy snow has led to hundreds of flight cancellation, and suspension of train services as of posting.
