A typhoon bringing heavy rain and wind gusts of up to 180 km/h has hit Japan’s capital, Tokyo.

At least two people have died and 29 have been injured in the storm.

Typhoon Mindulle made a direct hit on Tokyo around midday on Monday.

Many airlines have cancelled their flights across Japan. 400 flights have been cancelled so far.

Typhoon Mindulle has now weakened to a tropical storm as it moves up the country. It is still causing 80km/h winds and very heavy rain.

A typhoon is an extremely large, powerful, and destructive storm that occurs especially in the region of the Philippines or the China Sea.
