Due to the powerful downpours that have been going on for several days in some regions of the Land of the Rising Sun, more than 400 thousand people received recommendations and instructions for evacuation. It is reported by TASS, citing Japanese media.

At least 240 thousand people are in the highest danger zone due to bad weather. The authorities are urging residents of Kagoshima, Kumamoto and Miyazaki prefectures to evacuate as soon as possible.

Another 160 thousand people are in areas with a lower level of threat, but they are advised to move to safer areas.

According to Japanese meteorologists, 450 millimeters of precipitation falls per day in dangerous regions. There is a high probability of flooding of rivers and landslides.
