Japan: 40 Have Died in Typhoon Hagibis

Oct 14, 2019

In Japan, at least 40 people have died and over a dozen are still missing after Typhoon Hagibis swept through central and eastern Japan Saturday. Experts say it was the worst storm to hit Japan in at least 60 years. It dumped record levels of rain across parts of the country, causing at least 25 rivers to burst their banks. This is typhoon survivor Rie Hasegawa.

Rie Hasegawa: “Water came in immediately, and I felt the water gradually go up in dark. It was scary, and I was worried about our lives. I even thought that might be the end.”
