Japan does suffer from many disasters, both natural and man-made.  But yet again, there is another typhoon, this time the strongest one to hit since 1993.  

 

Over a million have been told to evacuate.

 

"Typhoon Jebi, with winds of up to 216 kilometres per hour, made landfall around midday in southwestern Japan near areas still recovering from deadly record rain earlier this summer."

Update: 7 dead, over 150 injured, Osaka airport cut off, infrastructure damaged. 

 

Powerful gusts ripped sheeting from rooftops, overturned trucks on bridges and swept a tanker anchored in Osaka Bay into a bridge to Kansai International Airport.

The damage to the bridge left the airport cut off from the mainland and stranded around 3,000 people there, an official told.
