In Nagano Prefecture, three cars were washed away by flood waters near the Chikuma River. Three people have been rescued but three others remain missing.

The Tama River, which flows through Tokyo, has overflowed. Some buildings, including a hospital, were flooded as a result.

In Fukushima Prefecture, fire department officials in Nihonmatsu city say two people went missing after a landslide destroyed a house.

Two people are also missing in Shirakawa city after their cars were submerged.
