The Flash Flood in Kobe: The following is a short video about the recent flash flood in Kobe-Japan in July 28, 2008. The water level raised up 1.3m in just less than 10 minutes. The time of the event can be seen on the top of the video. Total rainfall in this area was reported 38mm for 2 hours. Four people were killed in 100m downstream of this scene. They were inside of the river under the bridge in order to keep away from torrential rain.
