• One dead, two missing as ‘Vongfong’ pounds Japan


    TOKYO: One person was killed and two others remain missing after powerful typhoon Vongfong pounded Japan this week, officials said on Tuesday, the latest storm to hit the disaster-prone archipelago. The typhoon churned through eastern Japan early on Tuesday after hitting Okinawa over the weekend and making landfall on the nation’s southern main island of Kyushu on Monday, the meteorological agency said. At least 94 people were injured in typhoon-related accidents across the nation, while local authorities issued evacuation advisories to more than 800,000 residents, NHK said.
