Torrential rains in south Japan trigger evacuations

Japanese authorities urged more than 300,000 residents to evacuate their homes on Thursday as torrential rains battered the south of the country.

Dozens of roads and houses were flooded in Kumamoto and mudslides were reported around Nagasaki. Rain is forecast to continue into Friday.
