Rescuers in western Japan dug through mud and rubble racing to find survivors after torrential rains unleashed floods and landslides that killed more than 100 people, with dozens missing. Rain tapered off across the region battered by the downpour, revealing blue skies and scorching sun forecast to push temperatures above 30°C, fuelling fears of heatstroke in areas cut off from power or water. Nearly 13,000 customers had no electricity, power companies stated, while hundreds of thousands had no water. The death toll reached at least 110 after floodwaters forced several million from their homes. Another 79 people were missing.
