Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Japan flooding: Many feared dead in flooded care home”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Fifteen people are believed dead and nine are missing on Japan's southern island of Kyushu as devastating rains cause flooding and landslides.

Fourteen victims were found in the same flooded nursing home while the other was pulled from a landslide. The deaths have yet to be formally certified.

The authorities have ordered more than 200,000 to evacuate and 10,000 soldiers are being sent to help rescuers.

Kumamoto's governor, Ikuo Kabashima, told reporters the victims at the nursing home had been found "in cardio-respiratory arrest" - a term used in Japan before a doctor officially certifies death.

Footage shows a bridge over the Kuma river washed away, with other pictures of submerged cars and houses.
