(TOKYO) JUST IN: Twenty people are missing in central Japan after a huge landslide hit Atami city following heavy rainfall #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Kyodo news agency reports that the bodies of what appear to be two victims have been found in the port district.

#AceDailyNews says a landslide has hit Japan leaving at least 20-people-missing in Atami city and according to Reuters a number of houses were swept away or buried

Reuters: Houses Buried:

Video on social media above shows a torrent of black mud plummeting down from a mountain top and on through the city towards the sea. Several houses were destroyed or buried.

A witness described a “horrible sound” before he fled to higher ground. 

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga has put together a task force to respond to the disaster and the wider emergency caused by heavy rainfall on the Pacific coastline. 

Atami, a hot-spring resort in the prefecture of Shizuoka, has had more rainfall in the first three days of July than it usually sees in the whole month. The weather has been similar in neighbouring Kanagawa prefecture. 

A witness told national broadcaster NHK: “I heard a horrible sound and saw a mudslide flowing downwards as rescue workers were urging people to evacuate. So I ran to higher ground.” 

The mudslide struck at 10:30 local time (01:30 GMT), according to a local resident. 

Police, firefighters and members of Japan’s military are involved in a search operation. 

Reuters: Residents in parts of three prefectures – Shizuoka, Kanagawa and Chiba – have been ordered to evacuate following warnings of further flooding in low-lying areas.

Japan is prone to mudslides and flooding during its rainy season. Dozens were killed in flooding in July last year, and more than 200 died in 2018 when parts of western Japan were inundated.

` Washington Mudslide Disaster ‘ those that are `Missing ‘ has Dropped from 90 to 30 Officials Announce ‘

#AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON STATE – March 30 – The number of people considered missing in the Washington Landslide has dropped to 30 from 90, officials announced.

The town nearest to the landslide is DARRINGTON and they remember its dead and the scar it has left on their lives. Video at: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/washington-mudslide-becoming-one-of-country’s-deadliest-ever/

The count of those confirmed dead now stands at 18, but is expected to rise to 28 as soon as officials identify the remaining bodies.

At the same time officials said they expect the missing figure to drop in part due to a combination of finding people registered as safe and well and cross-referencing the list with confirmed identities of victims.

The 45-meter-long landslide in the north-west of Washington State last Saturday decimated the area, swallowing six houses, blocking a main road and damming a river.
