One day later, and while aftershocks continue - JMA has recorded over 50 that can be felt - there hasn't been any further major shocks.

People around the village have been getting on with things and once again in a situation like this we see some of the fine benefits of close-knit communities.

As far as I can tell, as of last night the village was reporting there was 15 light injuries with 2 more serious injuries; most damage to property seems to have been concentrated in a few relatively small areas. That of course does not make it any better for the people whose homes have been damaged though. A number of roads will remain closed presumably until they can be repaired, and a landslide needs to be cleared from the train line in Otari.

I do not want to dwell on this subject too much, but once again our thoughts and best wishes to everyone that has been affected by this.

The ski resorts around Hakuba and Otari all seem to be reporting that there is no damage to facilities with plans to go ahead with opening as planned.

After some rain yesterday, this morning we are back to clearer conditions and the sun. There's some cloud around and a bit of a hazy look early on. Temperatures are likely to rise over 10 degrees again here in the town later on in the day.

Late tonight and into tomorrow it's rain again with colder temperatures... snow up at higher levels?

Hakuba 47 - late November
