Cold, snow add to tragedy in Japan

Snow covers devastation, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan 17 Mar 11

Cold and snow has been adding to misery in northern Japan in the wake of the devastating earthquake, tsunami and aftershocks.

A dip in the jet stream this week has been producing colder than normal weather than what is typical for mid-March.

The area around Sendai received several centimetres of snow spanning Tuesday night into Wednesday this week.

The rough weather added further misery to desperate rescue attempts as the hope for finding survivors in the rubble across the region dwindled.
