A deadly earthquake struck Japan's west coast on Tuesday, killing at least eight people and causing widespread destruction, including damaged buildings, roads, and power outages in freezing temperatures.
Late on Monday, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida informed reporters that search and rescue teams were facing challenges reaching the most severely impacted areas due to blocked roads.
As of Tuesday, around 33,000 households in Ishikawa prefecture still had no electricity.
The earthquakes caused a big fire in Wajima, shown in videos, that spread to a line of houses. People had to leave in the dark, some with blankets and others holding babies.
