Heavy rain and landslides are continuing to wreak havoc across southern and central China, with more torrential rains forecast.
Extreme weather conditions have left 107 people dead. At least 59 others are missing.
An estimated 29 million people have been affected by the floods across 10 provinces and regions.
According to the official Xinhua news agency – since the beginning of July nearly a million people have had to abandon their homes.
Four landslides triggered by heavy rains killed 37 people this week alone.
Rivers of mud swept through villages in the southwestern provinces of Yunnan and Sichuan and in the central province of Hunan.
Japan too has been hit by devastating floods in the northern Kyushu and Chugoku regions.
Evacuation orders have been issued for 85,000 households. At least one person is missing and five people are reported injured.
Weather forecasters say more downpours are expected and the risk of mudslides and flooding in western Japan is very high.
