Japan hit by Typhoon Vongfong

October 15, 2014

Hundreds of thousands of people have been forced out of their homes after Typhoon Vongfong hit Japan on Monday morning.

The biggest storm Japan has experienced this year has left at least 30 people injured in Okinawa.

Japan’s high speed bullet trains were stopped and over 300 flights were cancelled due to strong winds.

Vongfong has weakened but is still considered to be a huge storm and weather experts say it could pass over the capital city, Tokyo at some point.

Huge amounts of rain will occur when the storm moves to the mountains of Kyushu that could result in flooding. This would mean further difficulties for residents and those living near the area.
