Heavy snow was expected from Tuesday evening in the Hokuriku and Chugoku regions, including areas affected by the Noto Peninsula Earthquake.
The snow was forecast to intensify, particularly along the coast of the Sea of Japan, through Thursday, but might also accumulate in the lowland areas on the Pacific coast.
The Japan Meteorological Agency warned of possible transportation delays and urged those in quake-hit areas to be cautious as houses might collapse due to the weight of the snow.
A 52-year-old resident who has remained in their quake-damaged house in Wajima, Ishikawa Prefecture, braved the snow to get water at a nearby evacuation center on Tuesday morning, saying, “I asked for more water than usual.”
