18th June 2018, the landslides and floods provoked by the

heavy rains, occurred during 5th-7th July, caused more than

200 fatalities, with 20 people still unaccounted for.


We are dealing with the heaviest rainfalls Japan has experienced

in more than three decades. Around 1,500 houses were destroyed

or damaged, and around 27,000 were flooded, according to the fire

and disaster management agency as at 14:45 on 15th July,

and numbers are still increasing.
