Heavy rain across parts of Japan killed one person, left two missing and injured dozens more, authorities said, with thousands of people issued evacuation warnings.

The inundation was caused by the remnants of former typhoon Mawar, downgraded to a tropical storm.

A rescue team in central Aichi region’s Toyohashi, where the highest-level evacuation alert was issued on Friday, “found a man approximately in his 60s in a submerged car, but he was later confirmed dead”, a city official said on Saturday.

A total of six people were seriously injured and 24 suffered minor injuries as of Saturday morning, the Fire and Disaster Management Agency said.
