Over a million people have been told to evacuate certain parts of the west of Japan on Monday.
Channel News Asia reported that more than a million households were left without power by the storm, and evacuation advisories were issued for nearly 1.2 million people, though only another 16,000 were under stronger – though still not mandatory – evacuation orders.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had urged people to evacuate early and ordered the government to take all necessary measures to protect residents of the affected areas after the weather agency warned of extremely dangerous conditions.
Abe said: “I urge the Japanese people to take action to protect your lives, including preparing and evacuating early.”
