Powerful tropical storm lashes Japan

A powerful tropical storm lashed Japan today, bringing strong winds and torrential rain. One person has died. Public broadcaster NHK and local authorities said at least 21 people sustained injuries.

The storm prompted warnings of landslides and flooding. Authorities issued a voluntary evacuation advisory to around 430,000 people in the storm's path.

Severe Tropical Storm Krosa, which is one notch below a typhoon, slammed into the southern Hiroshima region, packing wind gusts of up to 126 kilometres per hour. Dramatic television footage showed violent winds uprooting trees and snapping lampposts. 

At least 761 domestic flights were cancelled to and from cities in western Japan. Bullet train services were either scrapped or sharply reduced. Ferries connecting the southern Shikoku island and other parts of Japan were also cancelled as high waves lashed the coast.

The storm is forecast to cross the country's mainland and hit the Sea of Japan by tonight, reducing its strength.
