Typhoon Nanmadol and torrential rain caused massive physical damage in southern Japan. Several people have also been infected, but no deaths have been reported so far – thanks in part to the widespread evacuation.
Typhoon Nanmadol and torrential rain caused massive physical damage in southern Japan. A number of people were also injured, according to NHK radio. Thousands of residents of the area were forced to reach safety and train, and air traffic was limited due to the storm.
The southern island of Kyushu was hardest hit by the storm. Kagoshima Prefecture is under the most severe typhoon warning from Japanese meteorologists. Thousands of people went to emergency shelters, some even went to neighboring Miyazaki Prefecture.
The country’s meteorological institute had earlier warned of “invisible” dangers from the storm. Winds of up to 270 kilometers per hour are expected. About two million people were already urged on Saturday to evacuate or to evacuate themselves.
Japan withdrew a tsunami warning after neighboring Taiwan was hit by a massive earthquake. The typhoon was classified as a “severe” storm, the highest in Japan.
