The typhoon that hit Japan at 10:00 (GMT) in Izu Peninsula, South-west of Tokyo. The typhoon has killed at least 37 people and injured hundreds. Around 92,000 households are without power and 120,000 are suffering from water outages. Officers, volontiers and rescuers had to walk through waist high waters through the town of Hakone, which recorded 1m(3ft), the largest amount of rainfall Japan had recorded. 

7 million people were asked to leave their homes but only an estimated 50,000 people stayed in shelters. 110,000 rescuers have been sent to help the people in that area, cleaning the area, treating the people and looking for the 20 missing people.
