In Japan, men and power are still looking for missing persons after the landslide that hit the coastal town of Atami yesterday. The search is complicated by the bad weather: it continues to rain in the area.
The landslide led to a mud flow yesterday. It had a speed of 40 kilometers per hour.
Over a two-kilometre route, the violence of nature created a stream of destruction:
So far, two deaths have been recovered, but the fate of more people is feared. About twenty people are missing. About a thousand rescue workers are working in the area.
In Japan, the rainy season is under way, which more often leads to flooding and mud flows. There is a warning of more landslides in the coming period, including elsewhere in the country.
