Severe flooding hits eastern Japan

Japan was experiencing its share of floods and lots of scary footages were coming out of houses being washed away as heavy rains hit them for a second day in a row from tropical storm Etau. Residents were left stranded on rooftops and Japanese military helicopters had to rescue dozens and had a hard time keeping up with the demands...

Just after midnight early Thursday (Japan time), the Japan Meteorological Agency issued an emergency warning for heavy rainfall in Tochigi Prefecture, north of Tokyo, where more than 20 inches of rain fell in 24 hours in some locations. (Japan is 13 hours ahead of U.S. Eastern Daylight Time.) - weather.com
