warns of mudslides and floods

Heavy rains prompted an evacuation order for some 6,000 residents in
2,859 households in Ichikikushikino, Kagoshima Prefecture, on Monday
morning, as well as an evacuation advisory issued to more than 1.21
million people in 550,000 households in Miyazaki, Kumamoto and Kagoshima
prefectures as the Meteorological Agency warned of mudslides and floods.

In the city of Kagoshima, a woman in her 70s died after being buried in
mud up to her neck at her home in the Honjo district following a
landslide on a mountain behind her house.

The agency said precipitation over six hours Monday morning reached
241.5 millimeters in Kirishima and 233 mm in Hioki, both in Kagoshima,
marking record-high rainfall in both locations.

In one flooded residential area in Kirishima, three elderly people who
were stranded there were rescued by boat.

Default Heavy rain hits southwestern Japan, woman buried in landslide dies

Heavy rain hits southwestern Japan, woman buried in landslide dies
Full story:
https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2019/07/8fe5deecb0ab-update1-heavy-rain-hits-southwestern-japan-woman-buried-in-landslide-dies.html

Heavy rain hit southwestern Japan's Kyushu region Monday, leaving one
woman dead after a landslide, while local governments issued evacuation
advisories to around 1.2 million people.

The Japan Meteorological Agency warned of possible landslides and
floods, forecasting severe rainfall may continue to hit some western
Japan regions through around Thursday.

The atmosphere has become unstable as warm air from the south hit a
seasonal rain front stretching to western and eastern Japan from the
East China Sea, according to the agency.

Local governments in Kagoshima, Miyazaki and Kumamoto prefectures issued
evacuation advisories. A woman in her 70s who was rescued in Kagoshima
after she was buried by mud that had engulfed her house early Monday was
later confirmed dead.

Some Kyushu Shinkansen bullet train services between Kumamoto and
Kagoshima-Chuo stations were temporarily suspended. A national road has
been closed in Kagoshima due to a landslide.
