Japan – The Kanto region was hit by heavy rain Thursday morning, prompting the Meteorological Agency and local authorities in Chiba, Kanagawa and Shizuoka prefectures to issue warnings for floods and mudslides. The city of Futtsu, Chiba, received roughly 100 mm of rain in an hour up to 6:20 a.m., with some houses being flooded and a mudslide causing Route 127 to be partly closed. In an hour up to 5:40 a.m., 87 mm of rainfall, a record high amount since it started compiling the data, was reported in Miura, Kanagawa Prefecture, according to the agency. The municipal governments of Kamogawa and Minamiboso in Chiba issued an evacuation advisory to nearly 2,600 of their residents, while some local trains in Chiba stopped operation.

India – Monsoon floods are essential to the ecosystem of the Kaziranga National Park. Its vast grasslands, wetlands and lakes are annually revitalised by the Brahmaputra overflow. However, the 2017 floods have caused a severe crisis for the wildlife. If the 2016 floods were considered ‘the worst to hit Kaziranga in a decade’, the floods this year were probably the worst in 30 years. Over 85 percent of the park was inundated, displacing thousands of animals. Hundreds of animals – including tigers, rhinos, elephants, wild buffaloes and hog deers – have died in the past two months.
