World weather briefs

  • Tropical Cyclone Nanmadol brings death and devastation to southern Japan. TC Nanmadol, which formed in the Philippines Sea on 2 July, made landfall in Japan at 09.00 local time on 4 June about 40km E of Nagasaki, Kyushu Island. Continuous very heavy rain continued to fall in parts of SW Japan into 6 July, with parts of Fukuoka Prefecture, at the north of Kyushu, receiving up to 600mm in the 48 hours to 10.40 on 7 July, 1.6 times the rain that normally falls during the whole month of July. Some of the rain was phenomenal, Asakura, in the hills in southern Fukuoka, recording about 500mm in nine hours between 12.00 and 21.00 on 5 July with 106mm of that falling in just one hour to 17.00.

    Fukuoka and neighbouring Oita prefectures bore the brunt of the resulting floods and mudslides in Kyushu, Japan's southernmost main island. As at 10 July, local media reported a death toll of 18 with 30 people missing and over 440,000 evacuated. More details of the event are on Floodlist. Widescale destruction was reported, as these articles from Associated Press, Thomson Reuters Foundation and Al Jazeera show.
  • Assam plagued by long-term flooding. Assam in far NE India has experienced severe weather, storms, strong winds and heavy rain since early May, causing flooding and waterlogging main river catchments. Flooding worsened on 2 July when heavy monsoon rain caused the Brahmaputra River and tributaries to rise, submerging new areas. Official figures at 5 July showed 390,000 people were affected in over 850 villages across nearly half the 32 districts in Assam. Over 500 villages are under water and relief centres have filled rapidly, housing 45,000 people at 5 July. A 2 July report from the Assam Disaster Management Authority, with map, is here, and Floodlist's report is here.
