Japan clears up after storm fury

5 years ago97 views



People across Japan were clearing up on Tuesday in the aftermath of tropical storm Man-yi.

What's referred to in Japan as Typhoon 18 claimed at least three lives, mostly in landslides.

Five more washed away in flood waters are still missing.

Parts of the ancient capital, Kyoto, and neighbouring Shiga prefecture, bore the brunt of the storm's fury.

They got double their annual rainfall in less than 48 hours.

The crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant didn't escape either.

Workers dumped more than 1100 tonnes of rainwater into the ocean that built up during Monday.

The plant's operator, Tepco, said radioactive substances in the water were below the permitted limit for release in the sea and weren't a risk to the environment.
