1 dies, several injured as typhoon Mindulle floods Japan

The Kanagawa prefecture government says a woman died in Sagamihara city outside Tokyo on Monday due to the storm.

Typhoon Mindulle dumped heavy rainfall causing floods in Hokkaido, the northern island of Japan on Tuesday, after killing one person near Tokyo and injuring dozens.

TV footage showed that the strong typhoon flooded rivers, submerged roads and damaged farms in Hokkaido. Earlier on Monday, it resulted into landfall near Japan's capital.

According to the Kanagawa prefecture government, a woman died in Sagamihara city outside Tokyo on Monday due to the storm. The police and the local authorities were unsure of how the woman died.

However, the media reports said the 58-year-old caregiver was riding a bicycle when swept away by flood water.

Although Kompasu was downgraded to a temperate depression by early Monday but Mindulle was still dumping heavy rain on Hokkaido.

The officials have issued warnings for landslides, flooding, violent winds and high waves.

According to NHK, the national broadcaster of Japan, Mindulle already caused at least 61 injuries as it whirled across Japan's northeastern region.

More than 500 flights were cancelled on Monday across the nation due to the strong typhoon. Narita international airport closed the runways on Monday afternoon for about an hour. The officers were asked to evacuate the control tower due to strong winds.

According to the Fire and Disaster Management Agency, across Japan's eastern region more than one million people were evacuated based on advisories of varying degree since Saturday.

The local government said more than 2,700 people temporarily fled their homes to public shelter between Saturday and late Monday in Hokkaido.

The Japan Meteorological Agency said the storm was on track to leave Japan by midday, also over the Sea of Okhotsk.
