Netizens Are Amazed By Photos Of Clear Floodwaters In Japan Caused By Typhoon Hagibis
Photos of a residential area in Japan have gone viral because netizens are amazed by how clear the floodwaters are
The floodwaters were turquoise blue in colour and there was no visible trash floating on the streets
In one of the photos, the floodwaters were so clear that even the ground is almost visible.
A video by The Guardian showing flash floods caused by Typhoon Hagibis in Shizuoka Prefecture saw the same clear floodwaters.The person who filmed the video could even see his submerged legs when he pointed the camera downwards.
Many netizens have flooded the comment section to commend the cleanliness of Japan
"So clean. No rubbish floating. I wish Malaysia will be like this," a netizen wrote.
"This is the result of the country's education, which produced citizens with high civic values," another netizen added.
One netizen said in jest that even the koi fish, who were only swimming in the drain, are now free.
Typhoon Hagibis has killed at least 35 individuals since it hit Japan on Saturday night, 12 October
According to AFP, more than 110,000 rescuers are currently working around the clock to search for people trapped by the disaster.
Wind gusts hit Japan at a rate of 216 kilometres per hour. It was reportedly one of the most powerful storms to hit the Tokyo area in decades.
While there are photos showing clean floodwaters around Japan, there are also many photos showing muddy floodwaters which were caused by overflowing rivers.
