Torrential rainstorms in Western Japan have resulted in the worst floods and landslides in 36 years. Hiroshima and Okayama Prefectures were hit worst, with a death toll of over 200 until today. Many are still missing; two million people were told to evacuate. Over 300 homes were destroyed, and some 10,000 flooded.
