Typhoon Jebi tracking update

Japan on Monday braced up for a powerful Typhoon Jebi with weather authorities warning of heavy rain, high waves and strong gales.

Before it made landfall, the storm had sustained winds of 140 kilometers per hour (87 mph) and gusts of 165 kmh (102 mph), the equivalent of a Category 1 Atlantic hurricane.

After hitting western Japan, it is set to speed up further as it passes over the main island of Honshu and into the Sea of Japan, where it will weaken.

The dead included a man in his 70s, who died apparently after being blown to the ground from his flat in Osaka prefecture.

Television footage showed waves pounding the coastline, sheet metal tumbling across a parking lot, cars turned on their sides, dozens of used cars on fire at an exhibition area, and a big Ferris wheel spinning around in the strong wind.

The 24-year-old made 46 appearances for Monaco last season, scoring eight goals and assisting in a further five strikes. The manager, though, sees long-term advantages in Liverpool not being at their spellbinding best just yet.

Depending on the damage, it could take up to a week before Kansai airport will be reopened again.

About half a million households in Osaka and five nearby prefectures remained without power by late morning, according to Kansai Electric Power.

In the hard-hit city of Osaka, high seas poured into Kansai International Airport, flooding one of its two runways and cargo storage and other facilities, forcing the airport to shut down, said the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.

Evacuation advisories have been issued for 1.2 million people after the weather intensified on Tuesday afternoon.

The typhoon first made landfall in the southern part of Tokushima Prefecture at 12 pm (local time), before striking for the second time near Kobe city at around 2 pm (local time), The Japan Times reported.
