Typhoon Vongfong lashes parts of Japan

Pictured from space, Typhoon Vongfong looks remarkably harmless.

But on the ground, it’s a different story. The storm has unleashed winds of up to 180km per hour on parts of Japan.

The typhoon, the second to hit the country in a week, has affected the islands of Okinawa and Kyushu.

Thirty-five people have been reported injured and 150,000 evacuated.

The typhoon toppled trees, flooded streets and cut power to more than 60,000 homes.
