On Saturday morning in Japan, Typhoon Hagibis, the most powerful of domestic history, has wreaked havoc. As of Sunday morning, at least 11 people were reported killed, while 99 were injured and more than a dozen are still there. But there have been reports that 25 people were killed and more than 150 were injured. While military assistance is being sought for relief operations, a large number of people are still surrounded by floods, and efforts are underway to save them. Several cities, including the capital Tokyo, are experiencing flooding, the French news agency AFP said while there are widespread land sliding reports from various cities and regions of the country. Due to torrential rains, the rivers were broken. Shops, factories and train networks were closed while the Rugby World Cup and Formula One Grand Prix races were canceled. More than 1,600 flights have been canceled due to the storm so far, leaving 2 million people without electricity. Precautionary instructions have been issued by the government while directions to relocate one million residents of coastal areas to safer places have been issued.

The hurricane is predicted to be even more powerful than the hurricane in 1958 in which hundreds of people were killed and disappeared. By Sunday morning, the intensity of the storm had been recorded, but the river broke into residential areas in Nagano, central Japan, and reached the second floor of the house. Japanese army helicopters are committed to saving people. People have been asked to stand on balconies and take towels in the air to seek help from helicopters so that helicopters can draw attention to you. Last night, Yoshiohiro Yamagachi told AFP that he moved 1417 occupants of 427 homes to safer locations last night. However, he said it was not immediately clear how many homes were affected by the storm yesterday.

Typhoon Hagibis arrived in Honshu, the Japanese island at 7am on Saturday. Wind speeds were 134 miles per hour at the time of the storm. Until Saturday night, the storm did not receive any casualties reports, but by morning the number had increased to 25. Most of the fatalities were due to landslides and runoff of vehicles and houses. Human bodies were evacuated from various moving vehicles while a boat sank in the Gulf of Tokyo with 10 people aboard. Four were rescued by life guards while the rest are under investigation.

National broadcasters say 150 people were injured by the storm while more than a dozen are still missing. Japan’s Foreign Ministry had already predicted the worst rains and storms. The department said there was no precedent for the magnitude of the storm moving toward Tokyo. Tajim Tukoda, a Tokyo resident, says his house was filled with water taller than his height, saving him and his family by a boat. Saturday’s rains and storms caused the local and cat trains to collapse while numerous flights were not allowed to fly. Hundreds of flights were grounded. However, this morning the train service was restored to some extent, but the system is suffering from slowdown while service has been restored at only two airports in the country. But most flights still could not be allowed to fly.
