On Saturday, a powerful typhoon hit the Okinawa Islands in southern Japan, cutting power to more than 15,000 homes and delaying hundreds of flights.



With high winds of up to 180 km/h, the typhoon is heading north and is expected to continue its progress across the sea separating South Korea and western Japan.

Japan's Bureau of Meteorology has issued warnings of heavy rains, floods and large tides, while Okinawan authorities have issued evacuation orders for some 334,000 people.

Officials said at least 18 people were injured, while the Okinawa Electricity Company announced in the evening that some 7,800 homes had been damaged, while some 9,200 homes were still cut off. Earlier, it announced that 17,000 homes were in a state of disconnection.

Tabah comes in the wake of Cyclone Faxai, which hit Tokyo earlier this September, accompanied by strong winds that led to power outages, disruption of air traffic and hampered preparations for the Rugby Rugby Cup finals.

For more than a week, Faxai caused power outages for tens of thousands of residents on the outskirts of Tokyo.
