Record heavy rain has caused massive flooding and landslides in western Japan.

More than 76,000 residents were issued evacuation orders by local authorities, in Kumamoto and Kagoshima.

Roads have been cut off and several bridges have been washed away by the floodings, as well as mudslides have also been triggered by the rains, leaving at least two dead, more than a dozen missing and others stranded on rooftops waiting to be rescued, officials said.

On March 2011, one of the biggest earthquakes ever recorded was felt in Northern Japan. Tsunami warnings went up immediately, allowing for people to look for higher ground.

It’s from these vantages points that most of the raw footage available on YouTube was taken.

In some cases the ground wasn’t all that high, as is the case with this video.

 

PS: The guy that parked his car at the high point on the road surely had one of the scariest experiences of his life.
