At least 1,000 vehicles have been stranded in Japan due to heavy snowfall. The vehicles have been parked on the Tokyo-Nigata road for three days.
The drivers were forced to spend the night inside the car. Rescue work has already started. However, the work has become difficult due to the thick snow cover on the road. Due to heavy snowfall and snowstorm, 10,000 houses do not have electricity.
Heavy snowfall has started in Japan since last Wednesday. In some places, the snow level has accumulated up to six feet. The worst situation is in northern Japan. The local meteorological department said that the snowfall will continue for the next few days.
