Thousands of flood survivors remain in evacuation sites awaiting aid

Some Japanese residents in flood-hit Kurashiki City in western Japan returned home to clear debris, while thousands remain in evacuation centers awaiting for help. The death toll from the recent storms has exceeded more than 200, with dozens still missing in the aftermath of Japan’s worst weather disaster in three decades. After days of heavy downpours, the weather has finally cleared in western Japan. Residents are taking this opportunity to go back to their homes, but only to empty them of trash and debris as the storms have made many of them uninhabitable. Although Akiko Masaki’s parents’ home was well above the river, it still wasn’t spared from the massive flooding that inundated their entire community. Masaki went over to her parents as quickly as she could and has since been taking care of all their needs with help from her family and friends.
