US Bases In Korea and Japan Hit With Winter Storm

» by in: USFK

Hopefully everyone in Korea and Japan were able to get to work safely despite the snow:

Winter weather delayed schools and some operations at U.S. military bases in South Korea and Japan on Wednesday, though snowfalls were much lighter than anticipated in much of Japan’s heavily populated Kanto region.

In South Korea, as much as six inches of snow fell in some areas overnight, leading to two-hour delays at schools in Seoul and at Camp Humphreys.

Road conditions at Humphreys and for most bases in and north of Seoul were “red” Wednesday morning, prohibiting the use of military vehicles except for emergencies and essential business.

Forecasts called for snow to return to the peninsula Thursday, with a half-inch accumulation expected in Area IV, the country’s southernmost region.

In the Tokyo metropolitan area, schools closed at Yokota Air Base and ran on a two-hour delay at Camp Zama, Yokosuka Naval Base and Naval Air Facility Atsugi.

Yokota and parts of Tokyo were expected to get one to two inches of snow by late afternoon, a Japan Meteorological Agency spokesman said.  [Stars & Stripes]
