The rain may have stopped in Japan, although the country can be facing a long recovery process after floods as well as landslides killed at least 0 people inside the southwest.
yet another 13 people have since died coming from cardiac arrests, raising the total death toll to 103, according to Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga.
With emergency rain warnings lifted, the country can be right now turning its focus to search as well as rescue efforts. Police, fire departments as well as the military are scouring affected areas for the dozens of people still missing or unaccounted for.
“We will unite as well as move swiftly to deliver those necessities to the disaster victims by coordinating closely with local government,” said Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in a meeting with the disaster response task force, also noting “the future need” to improve evacuation centers as well as temporary housing.
While authorities search for the missing, residents begin the cleanup, wading through flooded houses as well as streets.
