President Rodrigo Duterte has offered assistance to Japan following the heavy rains that caused the worst flooding disaster in the east Asian country in 36 years.

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said that Duterte has offered to send soldiers, engineers and doctors to help in the rescue and rehabilitation measures in Japan. The Philippine government also offered to send medicines.

“[The Philippines] is offering Pinoy soldiers, including engineers and doctors, to help rescue and rehabilitation efforts” of areas hit by flooding and landslides following days of heavy rainfall,” Roque said.

Meanwhile, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has extended its sympathies to those affected by the flooding.

DFA said that no Filipino casualties have been reported by the Consulate General in Osaka as of Monday, July 9.

“The Consulate General in Osaka said it has received no reports so far of Filipino fatalities in the areas affected by the massive floods and landslides that came after the western region was pounded by record heavy rainfall over the weekend,” DFA said.

DFA has instructed Filipinos in the affected areas to follow instructions from the authorities and to evacuate if they are instructed to do so.

Heavy rains hit Japan on Friday, July 6, which caused flooding and mudslides in the western region of the country. A record-breaking 583 millimeters of rain were recorded from July 6 to the morning of July 7 alone.

As of writing, the death toll has risen to 195, with more than a dozen of people still missing, reported Reuters.

More than 70,000 military, police and firefighters are still searching for the missing victims.
