(TOKYO) JUST IN: Flood Report: Torrential rain has triggered widespread flooding across south-western Japan, damaging homes and disrupting transportation a day after a landslide killed one person and left two others missing #AceNewDesk report

#AceWeatherDesk says one person dead, two missing as heavy rain causes floods, mudslides in south-western Japan and in the southern city of Kurume, rivers overflowed and residents evacuated from their homes on rubber boats as rescue workers pulled them while wading through muddy water.

ABC News: Posted 18h ago, updated 13h ago

Heavy rain has dumped on southern Japan this week, and the Japan Meteorological Agency expects more rain in the coming days thanks to a front stuck above the Japanese archipelago.

The agency expanded heavy rain and mudslide warnings in the Kyushu region to other parts of Japan, including Hiroshima, as the rain front slowly moved eastward, bringing downpours to the ancient capital of Kyoto and Nagao in central Japan.

The rains were so heavy on Friday they triggered a mudslide in the city of Unzen in Nagasaki prefecture, burying four people.

One person was killed and another seriously injured. Rescue workers are searching for the two others.

Another mudslide in Hiroshima late on Friday left one person seriously injured.

Dozens of homes around the country have been damaged by floods and mudslides, according to the Fire and Disaster Management Agency.

Local authorities have issued the highest-level disaster alert for parts of Kyushu and Hiroshima, affecting about 1.4 million people, though evacuation is not compulsory.

“People must take steps to secure their safety,” a JMA official told a news conference.

“There has been almost no movement of the rain front over Japan, and it’s being fed by warm, humid air, which is making it more active.”

“Shinknsen” super-express trains connecting the southern city of Hakata and Osaka in the west have been temporarily suspended, according to West Japan Railway Co.
