Recovery continues 1 week after typhoon

People in Japan are still struggling in the aftermath of Typhoon Hagibis, one week after it battered large parts of the country.

Hagibis made landfall over the Izu Peninsula in Shizuoka Prefecture while maintaining its strength last Saturday.

It barreled through the Kanto region and the northeastern Tohoku region through Sunday, bringing record rainfall to many places.

The Meteorological Agency issued heavy rain emergency warnings for 12 prefectures and Tokyo.

Burst rivers, flooding and landslides were seen in wide areas, forcing residents to evacuate.

Some people remain in shelters, while restoration work continues.

More potentially heavy rainfall is forecast this weekend.

The Meteorological Agency warns that even a small amount of rain could trigger more flooding and landslides.

Officials are urging people to remain vigilant and keep updated with the latest weather information.
