Deadly floods, mudslides leading to loss of lives and property

Torrential rain has been pounding southwestern Japan, triggering floods and mudslides and causing loss of lives and property.
At least two people died in rain-related incidents, while at least six others were reported missing on Monday.
Rains falling in the regions of Kyushu and Chugoku since the weekend also forced road closures, train disruptions and cuts to the water supply in some areas.
The Japan Meteorological Agency issued an emergency heavy rain warning for Fukuoka and Oita prefectures on the southern island of Kyushu, urging residents in riverside and hillside areas to take maximum caution. More than 1.7 million residents in vulnerable areas were urged to take shelter.

                            Japan government needs to put down control measures on floods to prevent loss of lives and properties and long lasting strategies.
