- Story Text: Rescue and cleanup operations were underway in some damaged areas on Monday (October 14) after one of the worst typhoons to hit Japan in recent history.
At least 40 people were killed in the typhoon that left vast sections of towns in central and eastern Japan under water, with another 16 missing and 189 injured, public broadcaster NHK said.
As cold rain started to bring lower temperatures, some evacuees were worried about spending nights at one of the evacuation centres in Nagano, central Japan, where the Chikuma River overflowed and inundated swaths of land.
Typhoon Hagibis, which means "speed" in the Philippine language Tagalog, made landfall on Japan's main island of Honshu on Saturday (October 12) and headed out to sea early on Sunday (October 13).
