Yamaguchi JR Mine Line Bridge and tracks collapsed as a consequence of flooding of Asa River | NHK

Due to the heavy rain that began on June 30, the Asa River, which flows by way of Mine City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, was flooded, and on the JR Mine Line, the bridge and tracks that crossed the river between Minami-Omine Station and Shirogahara Station collapsed. In addition, in a number of locations round this space, the embankment of the railroad tracks was washed away by the river, leaving the railroad tracks floating.
