Threat of widespread flooding and landslides compounded by earthquake in Chiba prefecture
Four beings were killed and 17 were missing after the most powerful typhoon to ten-strike Japan in decades paralysed Tokyo, filling flows and putting millions under evacuation telling before it ploughed up the north-eastern coast.
Authorities filched rainwater and spate admonishes for the Kanto region around a becalmed Tokyo before dawn but enforced them on neighborhoods further north after super-typhoon Hagibis blared through the capital.
Attention focused on Fukushima, where Tokyo Electric Power Co overnight reported irregular reads from sensors monitoring sea in its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, which was crippled by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
Four parties died in Chiba, Gunma, Kanagawa and Fukushima prefectures circumventing Tokyo, according to public broadcaster NHK. Among them was a man in his 60 s who was located with no vital signs in a flooded suite in Kawasaki, NHK said. Seventeen were missing early on Sunday, it said.
