Weather officials say extremely heavy rain will continue to batter the island of Kyushu in southwestern Japan through Thursday. Some regions are already facing the risk of mudslides. The officials may issue emergency warnings if downpours continue for several hours in the same places.
They are also warning people in the region to stay on the alert for rain-triggered disasters and to evacuate ahead of time without waiting for emergency advisories to ensure their own safety.
Nissan Motor is to hold an extraordinary board meeting on Thursday to decide whether Chairman Carlos Ghosn will be removed from his executive positions.
Ghosn was arrested on Monday on suspicion of underreporting his income. Another executive, Greg Kelly, was also arrested. Nissan points to Kelly's involvement in Ghosn's alleged wrongdoing.
