Heavy storm damage in Japan

Torrential rain caused landslides and floods in Japan as a storm made its way up the Pacific coast. Typhoon Malakas was downgraded to a low-pressure system on Tuesday evening. But the heavy rain took its toll. A car was found submerged in an underpass in central Japan with a woman inside. She was unconscious, and later died at a hospital. A 6-year-old boy in western Japan was washed away while trying to recover a ball from a raging river. His body was found on Wednesday some 10 kilometers downstream. An angler was also swept away while attempting to cross a river in the mountains of central Japan. Rescuers found his backpack 5 kilometers away. A concrete bridge in the southern prefecture of Kagoshima was destroyed, and landslides can be seen along the river. Floodwaters as high as one meter swept through a city in neighboring Miyazaki Prefecture. Source and image:...
