Landslide disasters in Japan highest in 10 years

Japan's land ministry says this year has seen the highest number of land-related disasters in Japan in a decade.

The ministry says the number of landslides, mudflows and other earth-related disasters caused by heavy rain or snow melt in 2017 stood at 1,462. These disasters left 24 people dead or missing and destroyed or damaged about 700 homes in total.

370, or a quarter of the disasters, were caused by Typhoon Lan, which hit Tokyo and surrounding prefectures in October. Heavy rain in July in the northern Kyushu region was the second largest contributor with 307.

Fukuoka Prefecture in northern Kyushu had the largest number of land-related disasters at 235.

The ministry says this type of disaster affected all of Japan's 47 prefectures.

It says many typhoons moved from south to north along the Japanese archipelago, affecting wide areas across the nation.

It also blames a lingering active front on the Japan Sea coast that brought unusually heavy rainfall.
