Authorities issued evacuation for at least 200,000 residents. Over a100 people were stranded when flood waters rose and turned roads into rivers.

Abe was facing heavy pressure to declare a state of emergency after the number of new cases in Tokyo began doubling every several days in late March. The city of 14 million had 1,196 cases as of Tuesday, up from about 600 a week earlier. Japan focused on dealing with clusters of infections and selective testing for the virus, a strategy that has failed to curb its spread.

Residents are requested to avoid non-essential trips within and outside the designated areas.
