Typhoon Hagibis made landfall on the main Island of Honshu and eastern Japan on 12 October with wind speeds of 140mph. Hagibis is one of the strongest storms to hit Japan in decades, killing at least 40 people and inuring many more.

Hagibis is classified by Japan's Meteorological Agency as "violent" - the highest rating possible. The typhoon affected eight prefectures leaving more than 250,000 homes without power and 120,000 homes without water. 50,000 people have been moved to temporary shelters and 110,000 rescuers have been deployed.

The capital Tokyo escaped the worst of the storm but other cities and towns across the country were inundated by water. Flights, trains and sporting events were cancelled across Japan for safety reasons.

Hagibis weakened as it moved away from land but has left a trail of destruction stretching right across Honshu, from the Mie prefecture in the west, to Iwate in the north of Japan.
