    Background: IN AND AROUND NAGASAKI, JAPAN

    Al least 141 people have been killed in floods and landslides caused by heavy rain in the southern Japanese port city of Nagasaki. Police said on July 25 they believed many of the 198 people still unaccounted for had also died. More than a hundred missing persons are known to have been buried under landslides caused by the torrential rains. Others are believed to have drowned when their houses were washed into the Nakashima river which runs through Nagasaki. Rescue squads of police, firemen and soldiers worked continuously in pouring rain to search fro survivors. The Japanese Meteorological Agency said more that 500 mm (20 inches) of rain had fallen on Nagasaki over July 23 and 24. The city street were thick with mud, and littered with partly submerged motor vehicles. Thousands of people living near the river or in landslide areas have been evacuated to public halls and schools. Survivors have had to queue for fresh water as the floods polluted the city's supplies. The rains are similar to the torrential falls that hit Isahaya City in 1957 (July 25-26), and are a phenomenon often seen at the end of the rainy season in Japan.
