Last week, I covered a news story about flooding on Japan’s Kyushu Island and the southern part of Japan. According to locals, it is the heaviest rain and flooding in recorded history. This is an MSNBC video with a July 15, 2012 update to this South Japan flooding. It originally aired on the NBC Nightly News.
The torrential rains have caused both flooding and mudslides in various parts of the South. At least 25 people have been killed, and thousands are evacuated.
At the height of the rains, floods, and mudslides, more than 250,000 people were evacuated.
