Typhoon kills two, snarls transport in Japan

Services resumed on Monday morning.

According to Kyodo News, local authorities said on Tuesday four people died in the regions of Yamanashi, Shiga, Kyoto and Tottori, while one person went missing in Miyazaki as a result of the deadly typhoon.

One person was killed when a truck fell from a road that collapsed from a landslide and another drowned in a swollen waterway.

About 1.3 million homes suffered power cuts on Monday morning due to infrastructural damages throughout the country, including some 410,000 in Tokyo and nearby areas.

The typhoon sparked travel disruption in the world's third-biggest economy on Sunday, with bullet train services suspended, more than 1,000 flights cancelled and Tokyo's evening train services scrapped.

"I won't make it on time because trains are way behind schedule", said a woman in her 40s who was commuting to her office in Fuchu, western Tokyo.

Another two people were missing, it said, and nearly 400,000 households were without power.

East Japan Railway Co. announced all of its trains in the Tokyo would suspend operations after 8 p.m. Sunday as Typhoon Trami continued to move through Japan.

According to the Fire and Disaster Management Agency, 14 people had been seriously injured and 90 slightly injured as of Monday morning.

Shinkansen trains between Shin-Osaka and Hiroshima were also suspended as were numerous local rail services.

Osaka's Kansai Airport was closed on Sunday, but reopened Monday after over 200 flights were disrupted by the typhoon.

Japan has been hit by a series of typhoons this year, including Typhoon Prapiroon, which brought downpours and caused floods and mudslides in western Japan in July.

The typhoon, rated by Tropical Storm Risk as a category 1, the lowest on a five-point scale, killed two people and injured nearly 130, public broadcaster NHK said.
