    A huge landslide swept away homes and left at least 20 people missing at a popular resort town in central Japan on Saturday after days of heavy rain, local officials said.

    Television footage showed a torrent of mud obliterating some buildings and burying others in Atami, south west of Tokyo, with people running away as it crashed over a hillside road.

    “I heard a horrible sound and saw a mudslide flowing downwards as rescue workers were urging people to evacuate. So I ran to higher ground,” a leader of a temple near the disaster told public broadcaster NHK.

    “When I returned, houses and cars that were in front of the temple were gone.”
