A powerful typhoon, Jelawat, is headed to Tokyo Sunday after injuring dozens of people, causing blackouts and paralyzing traffic to the south and west of the capital.
The typhoon left 145 people with minor injuries in southern and western Japan. Dozens of trains were halted in coastal areas around Tokyo and many stores inside the capital closed early Sunday as the storm approached, the Huffington Post reported.
Japan's Meteorological Agency warned of torrential rain and strong wind gusts, urging residents to stay indoors. It was expected to hit northern Japan and then move off into the Pacific Ocean early Monday, reported by the USA Today.
