Northern Kyushu Heavy Rain - Delivered White Boards and Lanterns to the Omachi Community Center

On September 3, A-PAD Japan delivered 3 whiteboards and 26 lanterns to the Omachi community center. A whiteboard will be installed at each floor of the 3-story center and they will be used to share information for the evacuees. At the community center, there are now many temporary beds in rows made of cardboard boxes. One female evacuee said, "It was pitch dark at night when I went to use the restroom. I couldn't find my bed." The lanterns will be used to illuminate the pathways for the evacuees at night.

As of September 3, around 100 evacuees are still residing at the Omachi community center due to flooded homes and active evacuation orders.
