Record Snow Sweeps Japan…(The Next Ice Age Cometh…)

Heavy snow on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido.

An unusually powerful storm hit the city of Iwamizawa on Monday, leaving behind mounds of snow nearly two metres deep.

Scientists say they can’t confirm exactly how much snow fell because their measuring instruments were damaged in the blizzard.

But the island’s meteorological agency said this is the most snow Iwamizawa has been hit with since records began in 1946.

Here, the sheer weight of the snow caused the collapse of a wooden roof.

The falling structure knocked over several stoves, setting the building ablaze.

On Tuesday, many bus and train services remained suspended due to snow on the tracks and roadways.
