‘Unprecedented’ rain generates a tsunami-like wall of water in Joso, Japan

State of Emergency has been declared in Joso city [population: 67,000] in Ibraki Prefecture, about 60km north of Tokyo, as a tsunami -like wall of water buried the low-lying areas.

Tropical storm ETAU, having dumped about 500mm of rain over large areas of central Japan, passed over the country’s main island of Honshu into Japan Sea on Thursday; however, heavy rain is forecast to continue over Japan’s northeastern coast, including parts of Hokkaido island.

Another storm is chasing ETAU and is forecast to also track toward Japan’s northeastern coast, and Hokkaido.

Meanwhile, contaminated water at Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant has leaked into the Pacific Ocean after heavy rains overwhelmed the plant’s drainage pumps, said a spokesperson at Tokyo Electric Company (TEPCO).
