The shown rescue personnel are waiting transportation vehicles for bodies. As of Sept. 8 in Atsuma Town, 27 people were killed and 19

When I visited the city hall building of Kure, Hiroshima Prefecture in the morning of Aug. 4,  four weeks after the July Flood in Western Japan, over hundred people were registering for assignments of volunteer works at disaster areas.

According to reports in Facebooks, several hundred people are still coming to disaster areas every weekends to help recovering works.

I am impressed by these new phenomenon in Japan, and I realize I should visit Japan after major disasters for reporting these new phenomenon to American readers.

In 2018, I accomplished the first expedition to Hiroshima flood disaster areas from Aug. 2-9. When I was preparing the second expedition to Hiroshima, a typhoon hit Kansai Airport on Sept. 4 and a big earthquake jolted Hokkaido on Sept. 6.

I add a Sapporo visit to the second expedition to Hiroshima from Sept. 23 – Oct. 5. The expedition budget is $3,000. Your donation to this CN Editorial Project is really appreciated.
