Japanese Typhoon Mawar kills one

Typhoon Mawar hit central Japan, bringing heavy rain and winds that left at least one person dead and four injured and disrupted transportation, officials said.

With winds of up to 90 kph near its center, the typhoon was moving northeast after just missing Tokyo and hitting Chiba, 50 km east of here, the Meteorological Agency said. The agency said the storm was moving at a speed of 20 kph and that it will likely be downgraded by late Saturday.

Mawar cut power to more than 3,500 households in Chiba overnight, leading to 54 people being moved into the shelter of a public school, but power was restored in the morning and residents returned home.

In Shizuoka, 150 km west of here, a 55-year-old man died late yesterday after falling from the roof of his house, the police said.

A 47-year-old man was missing in Saitama, 50 km north of Tokyo, after he went fishing, the police said.

The typhoon flooded 30 households and triggered seven landslides in Chiba and Shizuoka.

A total of 89 flights, including eight international flights, were cancelled yesterday and today, affecting more than 12,500 passengers, airlines said.

As Pravda.ru said Tuesday, the typhoon halted Japan's bullet train services, affecting some 60,000 people.
