House Washed Away In Japan Floods

Tens of thousands of people have been forced to leave their homes as heavy rain fell on parts of Japan for a second day.

The Kinugawa River burst through a flood barrier, sending a tsunami-like wave into Joso, about 30 miles northeast of Japan's capital Tokyo, coming on the heels of Tropical Storm Etau.

Residents were left stranded and waving for help from their roofs as rescue workers used helicopters to pluck them to safety.

Tokyo was also hit by heavy rain but the worst affected parts of the country were in the north, in Ibaraki and Tochigi prefectures.
