Rain complicates rescue landslide Japan

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.
