The Japan Meteorological Agency has advised or ordered more than 160 000 people to evacuate as seasonal rain front hanging over the country threatens with record-breaking rainfall through the weekend. JMA cautioned of the rising likelihood of flooding, landslides, lightning and tornadoes. Stormy weather on July 5 has already left at least one person dead and several injured.

A low pressure system and an active rain front brought heavy rain to wide areas from western to eastern Japan on July 5 even after Typhoon “Prapiroon” was downgraded to an extra-tropical cyclone, the JMA said Thursday, July 5, 2018.
