12:09 pm
a resort town. the area began the gravel was, was lose by a long period of heavy rain. and this mud slide and debris just clattered down the mountain and started taking houses with it. and the, you know, according to the authorities, about 19 or 20 people are thought to be missing at this point. and, you know, really, it was a fearsome moment there for those in the neighborhood. and the authorities are warning people to look out for more. because the rain hasn't entirely stopped and this is rainy season in japan. and as you probably know, japan is very much a natural disaster country. i mean there may be no country on earth that has as many natural disasters in smaller is japan. does you know volcanoes, earthquakes, landslide floods it's, it's gets hit very heavy. and so the self defense forces, one of their missions is to,
