3 more dead as record rains hit Japan

AFP

TOKYO: Three people were found dead near rain-swollen rivers in Japan yesterday, officials said, as record downpours prompted authorities to order more than 210,000 people to evacuate their homes, with some areas hit by more than a metre of rainfall, reports AFP.

The body of a woman was found by a river in central Japan’s Gifu while a 59-year-old man was confirmed dead after being found by a river in western Hiroshima prefecture, local police said.

A 52-year-old woman in the Kyoto region who went missing on Thursday night was found dead by a river in neighbouring Osaka prefecture, according to police.

Police said they were investigating how the three died.

On Thursday, a construction worker was killed when he was swept away by flood waters in the Hyogo region.

Several people have been reported missing, with landslides reported in some areas and flash floods in others.
