As Japan grapples with the aftermath of a powerful 7.5 magnitude earthquake that struck the Noto Peninsula in the western part of the country, the situation continues to escalate, with the death toll steadily rising. The earthquake, which occurred almost 48 hours ago, has left a trail of destruction, particularly in the central Ishikawa area.

At Least 57 Confirmed Dead

By early Wednesday, at least 57 fatalities had been confirmed. The Noto Peninsula, located in a relatively secluded area, felt the greatest impact of the earthquake, with buildings collapsing and trapping people under rubble.

Rescue teams, racing against the clock, face challenges in reaching the affected areas due to severely damaged roadways, only exacerbated by the isolation of the region.
