                                      Since the beginning of September continuous rain caused by Tropical Storm Etau led the nearby rivers to reach their maximum capacity. This is in turn caused the river banks to burst and dykes to break resulting in massive floods and landslides in many residential areas of East Japan (Northern Kanto and Tohoku regions). Especially, Joso City of Ibaragi Prefecture along KINU river has been badly damaged. Also, areas along with upper stream of the river in Tochigi Prefecture has also been affected.
