Super Typhoon Megi Knock Out Effect.
The Japan Meteorological Agency said 647 millimetres of rain fell in the city of Amami over 24 hours, adding mudslides and flooding were now a danger.
Torrential rains have killed at least two people on a southern Japanese island and left one missing, with the weather agency warning of possible mudslides and more rain to come. The heavy rains have battered the subtropical island chain of Amami since Monday night, leaving two women dead at a nursing home. Landslides destroyed houses on the main Amami-oshima island, some 1,300 kilometres southwest of Tokyo.
