The Japanese Meteorological Bureau has issued the highest level of emergency warning of heavy rainfall for the prefectures of Saga, Nagasaki and Fukuoka in the southwest of the country.

They urge residents in these areas to be prepared for possible landslides and floods, and to know how and where to evacuate.

Met Office officials are closely monitoring the front of rain clouds over the northern part of the Kyushu region.

In the morning on Saturday, about 40 millimeters of rain fell in some cities in just an hour.

A river in Saga Prefecture bursts its banks, causing flooding of residential areas.

Meteorologists report that within 24- up to 250 millimeters of rain could fall in the Kyushu region until Sunday morning.

Heavy rains are also expected in much of the rest of the country. The weather front is believed to move east and last until next week.
