Typhoon Vongfong hits Japan islands amid landslide fears
Typhoon Vongfong, the strongest storm to hit Japan this year, has made landfall on the country's main islands, after injuring at least 30 in Okinawa.
The storm made landfall on Kyushu island on Monday morning, and there are fears that hundreds of millimetres of rain could cause flash flooding and landslides.
Meteorologists say Vongfong could pass over the capital, Tokyo, on Tuesday.
