July 9, 2018 - Het aantal doden door stortregens met overstromingen en aardverschuivingen tot gevolg in West-Japan, is opgelopen tot 112. In een tiental prefecturen zijn slachtoffers gemeld, velen van hen in het gebied rond Hiroshima.

Floodwaters forced several million people from their homes, NHK public television reported. More than 2,000 people were rescued from the hard-hit city of Kurashiki in Okayama prefecture.
