Torrential rain hits Niigata
Torrential rains in northern Niigata Prefecture flood more
than 14,000 homes and cut the electricity in some 29,000 homes in
the city of Niigata on Aug. 4. Hourly rainfall measured 97
millimeters, the heaviest since the Meteorological Agency started
compiling data in 1886. The photo taken Wednesday morning shows the
farming village of Sasakami sitting under water after a river
overflowed and broke a dike the previous day.
