Dramatic weather battered Asia in recent weeks. Heavy rains, flooding, mudslides, and even a typhoon have cut across sections of Japan, Taiwan, and eastern China, combining for a destructive cocktail of weather events. Resources have been allocated to the region, but more help is always needed. It is expected that the bad storms are going to continue.
Japan has been hit especially hard. In recent weeks the nation has gone through its worst flooding and landslides in decades following heavy and sustained rainfall. More than 200 people have died in what has become the country’s deadliest disaster since the earthquake and tsunami of 2011.
Rainfall hit several Japanese prefectures such as Hiroshima, Okayama, and Hyogo. Some cities were inundated in a matter of hours. The flooding was harsh in some areas because rain fell over mountainous regions and then funneled down, causing heavy flash flooding, CNN reported.
The Philadelphia Province has sent resources to affected areas. Additionally, 400 missionaries are being deployed to the same areas to help cities with their greatest needs. Supervisors are being deployed to channel resources into the areas that it is needed.
Meanwhile, Typhoon Maria affected sections of Guam, Taiwan, and the Chinese Mainland. The dramatic weather looks to continue. Storm watchers in the region are now focusing on a tropical system forming east of the Philippines that could develop into a typhoon.Ryan Hite President and Founder Inner and Universal Aquarian Epochal Chancellate Cell: 720-207-7943 Websites: Ryan J.
