JAPAN’S Floods July 2018.

Some numbers from Japan and their recent flooding as a result of a typhoon. Numbers vary according to sources but here are some that are reported. As an ARES coordinator these numbers are hard to imagine and nearly impossible to comprehend. I could not imagine working this situation.

– 1.8 million ordered or urged to evacuate, more than 6% of the entire population

– 73,000 rescue personnel

– 126 killed,

– 11,200 households have no electricity, hundreds of thousands have no water

–  267,000 homes with water damage

Death toll from west Japan downpours and flooding reaches 126
