Japan hit by typhoon
June 20th, 2012 by elisa

Yesterday, Japan was hit by one of the most powerful typhoons in eight years, killing one person and leaving a 16-year-old girl missing. Around 450 domestic and international flights to the country were cancelled.

Typhoon Guchol hit the south of Osaka, travelled north along the island of Honshu at 40mph then went into the Pacific Ocean this morning. Over 150,000 people in the storm’s path had to evacuate their homes as they were at risk from high waves, storm surges, landslides and gusts of up to 110mph.

Despite the order to evacuate, bullet trains were stopped for safety reasons, which left thousands of passengers stranded.

Authorities are warning that another storm is expected to land in Southern Japan on Friday.
