Powerful typhoon hits western Japan

Powerful typhoon hits western Japan
A powerful typhoon struck western Japan on Friday. Two killed, many injured and major traffic disruptions are the results so far.

The storm has been announced for several days, and hundreds of thousands of people have moved to safer areas further inland. Authorities fear flooding, mudslides and big waves in the wake of the typhoon.

Enormous amounts of rain have hit a number of rural communities in coastal areas. Several places have reported 700 millimeter rain in a short time. The extreme weather has led to delays and cancellations in rail and air traffic.

It is expected that the typhoon will glide over Japan and into the Sea of Japan during Friday and Saturday, and that it will weaken to a normal tropical low pressure.
