At Least 30 Injured in Japan due to Powerful Tropical Storm

TOKYO Ė Tropical storm Tapah has damaged several houses in parts of Japan, leaving at least 30 people injured, public broadcaster NHK reported on Monday.

But the severe tropical storm Tapah has now turned to a low pressure system even as it was still bringing strong winds and heavy rain across the country, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.

Japanís Fire and Disaster Management Agency has reported partial damage to six houses in Okinawa, Nagasaki and Miyazaki prefectures.

NHK citing the disaster management agency said 30 people were injured.

The 17th tropical storm in the region this season, which formed as a strong tropical storm in the East China Sea, was on Monday losing strength as it neared the coasts of Japan.

It was now moving along Japanís western coast at a speed of about 65 kph (40 mph), according to the met department.

The storm has caused strong winds and heavy rainfall, especially in the Okinawa Prefecture and the island of Kyushu, located southwest of the main Japanese island of Honshu.

Around 54 domestic flights were also canceled on Monday.

The cyclone also struck the eastern coast of South Korea leading to the cancellation of hundreds of flights on Sunday and the death of one person while injuring several others, South Korean news agency Yonhap said.

The victim was a 72-year-old woman, who died after her home collapsed in the South Korean city of Busan.
