NEOGURI unleashes flash floods, deadly mudslides as it sweeps across Japan

The fierce storm dumped more than 300mm of rain in less than 48 hours over parts of Japan.

“There are some places that may get as much as a month’s worth of rain over the next 24 hours,” said the local forecasters.

The massive storm left at least 3 people dead and dozens more injured. The system was downgraded from a Super Typhoon as it entered cooler waters north of Okinawa earlier.
