I guess the news of the heavy rains, floods and landslides has reached Belgium. Thanks for all your concerned messages. We had a lot of rain, but we are ok! Apparently we are not in the danger zone. Southwest of Japan is hit hard. News bulletin titles: “88 dead and over 50 missing”. Most casualties fell in Hiroshima in the Okayama Prefecture. This prefecture is one of the hardest-hit areas: more than 1,000 people were temporarily trapped on the roofs of buildings submerged by floods following the bursting of three dikes on the nearby Oda River. Rescue operations are continuing.
