In Nagano prefecture - one of the worst affected by the storm - torrential rains caused the Chikuma river to overflow and flood nearby localities, carrying away vehicles in its torrent.

In Sano, Tochigi prefecture, the overflowing Akiyama river flooded a residential area and rescue teams were evacuating locals.

The central government has deployed around 27,000 soldiers of the Self-Defence Forces (military) to take part in the rescue efforts, local news agency Kyodo reported.

The country's road network was also affected and the flooding of some of them left some areas isolated.
