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.
