Heavy rain has continued in Kyushu

In recent days, we, people in Kyushu, have had heavy rain. Yesterday's newspaper said that it was "keiken shita koto no nai oo-ame"(経験したことのない大雨)["record-breaking heavy rainfall pounded"].

The disaster had destroyed a lot of places, especially in the mountain area of Kyusyu like Aso that has a lot of sight-seeing places. I am sorry that good places have been destroyed. The Mainichi News

Today, I was worried that Onga-gawa(遠賀川), a big river near my house, might have flooded. But it did not happen, now I have felt safe.

Wow, that's serious rainfall! I didn't realize that it was coming down at such a rate. I'm glad that you and your family are safe, though.
