More deaths have been reported in the record flood and landslides disaster from torrential rainfall in Japan, with the official figure now put at one hundred and eighty.

 

At least seventy people are still missing, while more than eight million people have been ordered to evacuate their homes, as the rainfall persisted.

 

Reports say some two hundred and seventy thousand households across Japan have had their water supplies cut, and thousands of other homes are without electricity.

 

Reuters news agency reports that the hardest hit areas include the Okayama, Hiroshima and Yamaguchi prefectures, with pictures showing extensive damage especially in Okayama.
