Typhoon Hagibis Devastates Japan. Ended – the worst to hit the country since 1958.  

Japan is braced itself for Typhoon Hagibis.  The most powerful storm to hit the country in 60 years, made landfall near Tokyo on Saturday.

Torrential rain and tornado-like winds lashed large parts of Japan.

The eye of Typhoon Hagibis hit Japan’s main island shortly before 19:00 local time (10:00 GMT), in Izu Peninsula, south-west of Tokyo.

The country is already feeling the effects, with some areas flooded, tens of thousands of homes without power, and one person dead.

Winds of 180km/h (111mph) could cause further flooding and landslides, the Japan Meteorological Agency has warned.

Some Rugby World Cup matches and Formula One races have been cancelled.  However Sunday games going ahead: Scotland v Japan due at 11:45am.  Wales v Uruguay 09:15am.  Let’s hope they happen.
