Earthquake Deaths in Japan Now 180, With 120 Missing

The death toll has jumped to 180 in the central Japan’s Ishikawa, local authorities announced on Tuesday, about one week after a series of earthquakes of up to 7.6 magnitude struck the prefecture and its vicinity.

A total of 120 residents are currently unaccounted for, according to data from the prefecture.

A cold air mass has been bringing snow to Ishikawa Prefecture and other parts of the Hokuriku region, causing difficulties for the search and rescue work.

The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) warned on Monday that quake-stricken areas are likely to experience powerful tremors with an intensity of upper five or more on the Japanese scale in the coming month.
