“Heavy rain is likely to continue until July 5, and people in the area are always on high alert,” Reuters quoted a July 4 statement by Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo. The Japanese Self-Defense Force will mobilize 10,000 soldiers to join the rescue operation.

NHK said flood waters of the Kuma River on the southern part of Kyushu Island destroyed many houses and swept away a bridge in the area. The government has ordered more than 92,200 households living in Kumamoto and Kagoshima prefectures to evacuate.

The Japan Meteorological Agency on the same day raised the disaster warning level to the highest level to avoid the risk of flash floods and landslides.
