World | incidents | 11:03, 05 September 2018 | 654

AKIPRESS.COM - At least nine people have reportedly died after Japan was hit by its strongest typhoon in 25 years, Sky News reports.

More than one million people have been urged to evacuate their homes as Typhoon Jebi brought winds of up to 135mph to parts of the country.

Tens of thousands of buildings have been left without power, with more than 700 flights cancelled along with scores of train and ferry services.

Japan's weather agency warned of possible landslides, flooding, high tides, lightning and tornadoes across a swathe of the country.

Japanese media said nine people have died in the severe weather, while more than 200 people have reportedly been injured.

A man in his 70s was killed after apparently being blown to the ground from his apartment in Osaka prefecture.

Meanwhile, a 71-year-old man died after being buried underneath a storage unit that collapsed on him.

Evacuation advisories were issued for 1.19 million people in western and central Japan, with another 16,000 people issued with stronger but non-mandatory evacuation orders.
