One of the most powerful typhoons of the year is barreling toward parts of Japan, including Tokyo. Weather officials say it could dump record amounts of rain. The storm is already battering Chiba Prefecture where violent gusts have torn roofs off homes and left some residents with injuries.
Meteorological Agency officials have classified Typhoon Hagibis as "very strong". The storm is moving northwards over the Pacific towards Japan's main island of Honshu.
