Typhoon Faxai entered in Japan, killing one and at least 30 people were reported injured in Chiba, Kanagawa and Shizuoka prefectures. A woman in her 20s was seriously hurt after pillars at a golf practice range fell onto her home in Ichihara city in Chiba prefecture. Strong typhoon Faxai arrived on Monday, triggering record winds, heavy rains and rising rivers in some rivers. This is the 15th typhoon of this year.

More than 100 flights were canceled and dozens of train lines were shut down, disrupting the morning transport of millions in the Tokyo metropolitan area of ​​about 36 million as authorities warned people of the danger of going out.

Just before dawn Monday, Typhoon Faxai swept through Chiba, east of Tokyo, triggering winds of up to 207 kilometers per hour,  Nippon Hoso Kyokai (NHK), a Japanese National Broadcasting Corporation said.

No casualties were reported and only minor injuries were reported by Monday morning, but about 864,000 homes, including the entire Kamogawa, a city located in Chiba Prefecture,  were without power, the agency said.

Four to five tornadoes hit Japan every year, but it is unusual for them to arrive near Tokyo. Japan’s broadcaster said, typhoon Faxai was the strongest in the Tokyo area in years.

Authorities have ordered the evacuation of about 5,000 people, more than half of them in the tourist city of Kamakura, just south of Tokyo, because of the risk of landslides, but no serious damage was reported.

Earlier on Sunday, the Japanese officials ordered the evacuation of about 3,700 people from the city of Ebina, Kanagawa Prefecture and Izu Oshima Island, south of Tokyo, as Typhoon Faxai approaches.

The officials raised the level of caution to the fourth level on a scale of five.
