2 dead, 115 injured after strong storm battered Japan

(MENAFN) More than two people lost their lives and 115 others wounded when a strong storm hit parts of Japan.

Japanese experts, on the other hand, announced Typhoon Nanmadol was moving north with a steady reduction in its intensity but the weather agency cautioned of strong winds, high tides, and possible landslides in the nation's biggest main island of Honshu.

The typhoon battered southwest Japan on Sunday with rainfall and strong storms, causing landslides and cutting off power to minimum 100,000 homes on Tuesday.

Nanmadol is this season’s 14th storm in Japan and “one of the most powerful storms the country has ever seen when it reached the southwestern region of Kyushu on Sunday, bringing unprecedented winds and intense rainfall,” according to Kyodo News.

Two men were found deceased in Miyazaki province while another was lost in Hiroshima province.

In line with a declaration issued today, Kyushu Electric Power Co. said: “More than 100,000 homes were still without power as of 11 AM (0200GMT).”
