    TOKYO ? Record torrential rains across western and central Japan unleashed flooding and landslides in several residential areas, killing dozens and triggering weather warnings in four districts of the country.
    By Saturday evening, at least 51 people were dead and 48 were missing, according to the public broadcaster NHK. More than one million people in 18 districts had been ordered to evacuate their homes and 3.5 million had been urged to leave.

    Shit, that sounds pretty awful. Japan seems to have incredible natural calamaties. As an island nation, they are going to be hit hard by climate change I'd wager.
