Miyazaki Shiiba Village Search continues for four unknown people damaged by typhoon No.10 heavy rain September 9 at 12:27 p.m.
The search resumed in the morning on September 9 at the site in Shiiba Village, Miyazaki Prefecture, where houses and other buildings were washed away by heavy rain caused by Typhoon No. 10, and the whereabouts of four construction company officials were lost. Most of the sediment is believed to have flowed into the river just below, and the search is being carried out in a wide range down the river.
In Shiiba Village, Miyazaki Prefecture, typhoon No. 10 caused more than 500 millimeters of rain, causing the slope of a mountain in the Shimofuku area to collapse, pushing away the home and office of the president of a construction company.
The president, who is in his 70s, escaped from the sand on his own, but his wife in his 60s, his son in his 30s, and two Vietnamese technical intern trainees, all of whom are in their 20s, have lost their whereabouts.
According to the president, it was believed that the sediment flowed in on the night of the 6th, and on the morning of the 9th, the third day, the search resumed with 260 people, including police and local fire brigades, before 8 a.m.
Most of the collapsed sediment is believed to have flowed into the river just below, and the search is being carried out over a dam about six kilometers below.
However, it rained in the morning on the 9th in the vicinity of the site, and the flow of the river was fast, and according to the police, it was not possible to search into the river.
The man who visited the site “I want you to find it soon”
A man who runs a construction company that visited the site and had a relationship with the president and his son said, “I’m really surprised that the president had just built a house two years ago, but it’s gone. I want four people to be found as soon as possible.”
