Japan — Mudslides continue to be a threat to residents of southwestern Japan, which was flooded by heavy rains that overflowed rivers.

At least 155 have died, as water swept through entire towns. The military, police and other rescue workers have been using paddle boats and helicopters to rescue as many stranded people as it can. The government has sent in more than 70,000 soldiers and emergency crew.

Rain warnings stopped on Monday, but the AP reports the Japan Meteorological Agency stated “parts of southwestern Japan had as much as 3 inches per hour of rain, the highest in decades.”

Many residents still are listed as missing, and residents of the worst-hit areas, such as Hiroshima, lack electricity and potable water.
