Japan issues highest emergency alert for over 1mn people as heavy rain ‘like never before’ triggers evacuations

It’s too late to evacuate elsewhere in Japan as the meteorological service has put three prefectures and the city of Hiroshima, on the highest possible emergency alert and torrential rains have caused flooding and mudslides.

Special weather warning i.e. level 5, was issued for three cities i.e. Nagasaki, Saga, and Fukuoka. Before that, the same warning was also issued for Hiroshima. 

According to Japan’s Meteorological Agency, “it’s been raining like never before”. It further noted that “it’s too late to evacuate when a special warning is announced” and in this stage, citizens are encouraged to save their lives at any cost by themselves i.e. by moving higher floors. This highest level alert applies to 1 million people as estimated.

While other 4.28 million are also prone to level 4 of alert evacuation. While the government has not so far issued any formal evacuation order, citizens are just encouraged to save themselves as quickly as possible.

Till now, two people are missing due to flooding, and only one fatality is reported. Non-security issues are big challenges for coming years.
