Rescuers resumed a desperate search Friday for people believed buried under mud in the quake-struck village of Minamiaso, Kumamoto Prefecture.

Some 1,400 police officers and Self-Defense Forces personnel hunted for two people reported missing, including Hikaru Yamato, 22, a college student from Aso in the prefecture.

Volunteers mucked in to help distribute food and supplies at evacuation centers in Kumamoto Prefecture and nearby. Some shoveled debris and helped to clean up homes.
