As the scale of the disaster caused by record downpours began to sink in, emergency workers continued their search and rescue operations. With the return of clear skies and a rise in heat and humidity, Hiroshima officials’ worries turned to getting emergency water and food to over 100,000 households, many located in areas that are currently difficult, if not impossible, to reach by road.
