Nearly half a million people are told to evacuate in the face of Japan's rising floodwaters.

Local residents stand on grassland as they look out towards greenhouses submerged by floodwaters in Kurume, Fukuoka Prefecture, on July 14, 2012. About 400,000 people were ordered or advised to leave their homes in southwest Japan as heavy rain pounded the area for a third day leaving 29 dead or missing, officials and media said.
