The number of casualties from the devastating earthquake in Japan has surged to 62 as the country grapples with aftershocks and adverse weather conditions. Experts fear that the toll is likely to rise even further in the coming days.

However, the earthquake, which struck several regions of Japan, has left a trail of destruction in its wake. Rescue efforts have been hampered by persistent aftershocks, making it challenging for authorities to locate and assist survivors.

The Noto Peninsula, particularly towns like Wajima and Suzu, suffered significant losses, with buildings getting ravaged by fire and houses flattened.

Furthermore, authorities have warned of landslides and heavy rain in the aftermath of the earthquake. Monday’s 7.5-magnitude quake has already caused tsunamis over a meter high, leading to widespread destruction, major fires, and damaged roads.

Heavy rain and strong winds have impeded search and rescue operations, leading to delays and hindrances in providing immediate aid to affected areas.

As emergency responders continue their arduous work, concerns are mounting that the current death toll will escalate further. The extent of the damage and the vast number of missing people underscore the gravity of the situation.

In conclusion, weather forecasts suggest that these adverse conditions are expected to persist in the forthcoming days, posing additional challenges for recovery efforts.
