Death toll rises to five after Japan flood

AFP

AFP, TOKYO: The number of people who died in floods which devastated Japan this week reached five Sunday as rescuers continued their search for more than a dozen still missing.
Police said they found the body of a 68-year-old man in Tochigi, north of Tokyo, in the early morning, the fifth located in the rescue operation.
The body was reportedly found inside a submerged car at a water-covered rice field in the town that also suffered floods.
Police also discovered another body of a man in the afternoon in a rice field of most severely-hit Joso, a community of 65,000 residents, parts of which were washed away Thursday when a levee on the Kinugawa river gave way, flooding an area that reportedly spans 32 square kilometres (12 square miles) after the worst rains in decades.
“We’re still investigating the identity of the body and whether the death is related to the flooding,” police told AFP.
