Help

A powerful typhoon has hit Japan's southern island of Okinawa, injuring more than 50 people and leaving thousands without power.

The country's Meteorological Agency said Typhoon Jelawat was expected to hit the Tokyo region Sunday evening. Residents have been warned to stay indoors.

Amateur footage posted online shows a car being rolled out of the parking lot at a military base on the island.
