Typhoon slams into Japan; authorities to issue evacuation orders

A powerful typhoon slammed into central Japan early today, prompting local authorities to issue evacuation orders. According to nation's public broadcaster NHK, Typhoon Jongdari, packing winds of up to 180 kilometres an hour, made landfall in Ise in Mie prefecture at around 1 AM. 

The storm, which had already dumped torrential rain over eastern Japan, was moving west maintaining its strength.  TV footage showed high waves smashing onto rocks and seawalls on the coastline in Shimoda, southwest of Tokyo, and trees buffeted by strong winds and heavy rain. 

One man was reportedly missing in Kanagawa Prefecture, near Tokyo, after several vehicles, including an ambulance, became stuck on a wave-battered ocean road. The storm is expected to barrel towards the western Chugoku region later today, where record rainfall earlier this month unleashed flooding and landslides, killing around 220 people and leaving more than 4,000 survivors still living in temporary shelters.
