Powerful typhoon downgraded after lashing Japan, leaving at least 2 dead
TOKYO (AP) - Crews were cleaning up wrecked houses and assessing damage on Tuesday in the wake of a powerful typhoon that lashed Japan with torrential rains, leaving at least two people dead.
Typhoon Man-yi weakened into a tropical storm by late Monday, though violent winds persisted into the night.
Dozens of people were injured and thousands of homes damaged. In the popular tourist destination of Kyoto, where 260,000 people were ordered to evacuate to shelters, the Katsura river remained flooded at midday on Tuesday.
Man-yi moved offshore of the northern island of Hokkaido late Monday, followed by torrential rains.
