Weekend storm batters Japan
A succession of storms brought flooding and high winds that ripped off roofs, derailed trains and injured eleven people. The flooding also ripped holes in roads. Parts of Japan have seen over a month's worth of rain already this month.
Landslides have been reported and remain a risk following the heavy rainfall. Some flights departing from Sapporo in northern Japan were cancelled while pilots had to abandon landings due to strong cross winds. Gusts of over seventy miles per hour were reported across northern Japan and some areas in Hokkaido picked up to a whopping 50 millimetres of rain in an hour.
Although designed to resist flooding, a subway in Tokyo was unable to cope. Elsewhere on public transport - trains on eight rail lines to the north of Japan's main island, Honshu, were cancelled or delayed. The storm also whipped up waves as high as eight meters along northern coasts. BBC Weather's Susan Powell reports.
