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.
