The Japan Meteorological Agency has announced a special warning for heavy rain in Kumamoto Prefecture in addition to Kagoshima and Miyazaki Prefectures.

The highest level of vigilance is required for information that corresponds to the highest level 5 of the 5 levels of vigilance.

In Kagoshima, Miyazaki, and Kumamoto prefectures, the risk of sediment-related disasters is extremely high, the water level of rivers is rising sharply, and the Japan Meteorological Agency checks the surrounding conditions and when it is dangerous to move to the evacuation site. It is possible to save even a little life by moving to a sturdy building nearby, or if it is already dangerous to go out, move to a room on the second floor or higher of the building opposite the cliff or slope. We are calling for high-quality actions.

According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, due to the active activity of the Baiu front, Kagoshima, Miyazaki, and Kumamoto prefectures continue to receive developed rain clouds one after another.

Following Kagoshima and Miyazaki prefectures, the Japan Meteorological Agency announced a special warning for heavy rain to Kumamoto prefecture at 6:10 am.

This is the information that corresponds to the highest level 5 of the 5 levels of alertness.

The Japan Meteorological Agency is calling for the utmost caution against sediment-related disasters, river flooding, and low land inundation, saying that the heavy rains that have fallen so far pose a risk of enormous damage that occurs only once every few decades. ..

Also, in Kagoshima Prefecture, a linear precipitation zone with a series of rain clouds developed in a belt shape was confirmed, and the risk of life-threatening sediment-related disasters and floods is rapidly increasing, the Japan Meteorological Agency said before 3:30 am "Information on remarkable heavy rain" is announced.

Take strict precautions against sediment-related disasters and river floods, and take actions to ensure your safety, such as evacuating to a safe place or moving to a higher floor of the building if it is difficult to evacuate to the outside.

Due to the rain that has fallen so far, the risk of sediment-related disasters has become extremely high in Kagoshima, Kumamoto, and Miyazaki prefectures, and "Sediment-related disaster warning information" has been announced.

In addition, there are rivers in Kagoshima and Miyazaki prefectures that exceed the "inundation risk water level", and the water level of the rivers in the Sendai River, which flows through Miyazaki and northern Kagoshima prefectures, is rising sharply.

The Sendai River suffered widespread damage in July 2006, including flooding in Satsuma Town due to heavy rain.

It is raining more than expected, and the situation may deteriorate rapidly in a short time, mainly in Kagoshima, Kumamoto and Miyazaki prefectures, so strict caution is required.
