A snowplow clears a path beside cars stranded on the snow-covered Kan-etsu Expressway at the city of Minamiuonuma in Japan

“As time went by, the cars got buried,” said a driver. “I was really scared.” Japan’s Self-Defense Forces distributed food, blankets and fuel to the stranded, and worked with shovels to free vehicles.
