Powerful Typhoon Trami hits Japan, injuring dozens

Typhoon Trami brings Tokyo to a standstill with train halt

Powerful typhoon Trami batters Okinawa island, churns to Japan mainland

A ship washes ashore at a port in Yonabaru, Okinawa Prefecture, on September 29, 2018, as Typhoon Trami approaches Japan's southernmost prefecture.

Outlying islands in the Okinawan chain, some 1,000 km (621 miles) southwest of Tokyo, were being pounded by heavy rain and high tides a day before an Okinawan gubernatorial election on Sunday. The tropical cyclone is classified as a "very strong" typhoon, the second-highest on the Japan Meteorological Agency scale. Okinawa's electric authority said power had been lost to more than 250,000 homes and more than 200,000 were still without electricity and water as of 10:46 a.m. Sunday.

The storm has disrupted air travel, with an unspecified number of flights suspended Sunday, according to public broadcaster NHK.

In its projected course are regions hit earlier this month by Typhoon Jebi, which caused landslides, floods and shuttered a major airport.

At least 386 flights were cancelled, mainly in western Japan, according to NHK.

West Japan Railway was to suspend local train services in Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe districts from Sunday morning, and the Shinkansen bullet train was also to be halted.

The typhoon was expected to pick up speed and maintain its strong force while possibly making landfall in western Japan on September 30.

Trami will threaten lives and property as it slams the Ryukyu Islands and mainland Japan with destructive winds, flooding rain and an inundating storm surge.

No deaths were reported, but at least 52 people were injured as the storm passed.

"People in Okinawa are used to typhoons but we are strongly urging them to stay vigilant", he told AFP.

He said Democrats "go into a back room and they talk with each other and they laugh at what they're getting away with". In a statement released by the White House, Kavanaugh said, "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone.

The airport also was closed for this latest typhoon.

The worst typhoon to hit Okinawa in six years left thousands without power, canceled hundreds of flights and stranded tens of thousands of passengers over the weekend and now turns its attention to the Kanto Plain, where it's forecast to hit Sunday night.

Western regions are still recovering from the most powerful typhoon to strike the country in a quarter of a century in early September. Typhoon Jebi claimed 11 lives and shut down Kansai Airport, the main regional airport.

Maintaining its "very strong force", the storm churned near Kagoshima on the western tip of Japan, causing seven minor injuries.

Also in September, a magnitude 6.6 quake rocked the northern island of Hokkaido, sparking landslides and leaving more than 40 people dead.
