    ... Large parts of western Japan, particularly the southernmost main island of Kyushu, have seen record levels of rainfall, with as much as 956mm (37.6 inches) of rain falling in one area over the three days up to noon on Saturday.

    Japan has issued its highest level 5 risk alert, meaning around 1.5 million people have been asked to evacuate, the NHK public broadcaster said.
