Typhoon Hagibis: Japan deploys 110,000 rescuers after worst storm in decades

Typhoon Hagibis: Japan deploys 110,000 rescuers after worst storm in decades

More than 110,000 people are taking part in search and rescue operations after Typhoon Hagibis struck Japan on Saturday.

The typhoon – the worst storm to hit the country in decades – has left at least 40 dead, with 16 missing.

Typhoon Hagibis also caused the cancellation of three Rugby World Cup matches but a key match between Japan and Scotland went ahead.

Japan won 28-21 to reach the quarter-finals for the first time.

The typhoon has weakened and moved away from land but has left a trail of destruction.

A train depot in Nagano was also flooded, causing 10 high-speed (“bullet”) trains to be submerged. Each train has been valued at $30m (£23m).
