Troops to Save the Day in Japan0

After a series of severe weather warnings in Japan, the island of Kyushu is struck by monumental floods.

Much like the UK, all around Japan the weather stations have warned of imminent heavy rainfall, but few expected it to turn out like the picture on the right. The Japanese army was drafted in to hand out emergency supplies to thousands affected by the gushes of water in the southwestern island of Kyushu, most known for its capital city Fukuoka.

In addition to these floods, landslides have occurred on the particularly mountainous terrain of Japan, further increasing the current death count of 26. Considering hundreds of thousands have lost homes, furniture and possessions, 26 lost lives is a very small figure. Kyoto, the previous capital of Japan, has also experienced unwanted floods.

The north-west of the island was the worst hit, with poorly-constructed roads simply floating away with the torrents rushing past them. Approximately 5,000 were left stranded in their homes because of this. There are still many citizens & tourists missing, but authorities cannot estimate the amounts. A quarter of a million people have been evacuated in nearly half of the prefectures of Kyushu, 190,000 of those in afore-mentioned Fukuoka. Schools, town halls and places of worship are signposted as refugee shelters, a short-term solution to this massive problem,

But what do you think? Are any of your friends or family left stranded in the damaged areas? If so, tell us below! We’d love to hear your views!
