14 INCHES of rain in 2 hours! Japan flooded out

Sharing is Caring!

85 people have been killed and over 2 million forced to flee their homes in record-breaking floods that have hit Japan. Over 14 inches of rain fell in 2 hours – just insane!

Pretty apocalyptic sounding to me!

 

 

Dozens of people have been killed and 2 million forced to flee their homes after record rains pounded southwest Japan, triggering widespread flooding and deadly landslides.

Authorities said that 85 people are dead, 6 are in critical condition and at least 58 are missing, according to Japanese broadcaster NHK.

“The record rainfalls in various parts of the country have caused rivers to burst their banks, and triggered large scale floods and landslides in several areas,” Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said Sunday.

Hundreds of homes have been destroyed or damaged. In all, eight prefectures have been affected, including Kyoto and Hiroshima.

“I went to my father’s family home but it was hopeless,” one man said. “We were hoping to find two people but still can’t find one.”
