The incessant rain that unleashed floods and caused landslides in western Japan took at least 100 lives so far. The rescuers are in the mission of digging mud and rubble in search of survivors as dozens are still missing.
The downpour battered the western parts of Japan and caused the rives to burst their banks. The place received three times the usual rainfall for the whole of July.
A weather official said that the country had never experienced such a downpour.
Those who have survived the wrath of nature are now in the scarcity of food, water, and electricity.
