It's been one month since the powerful Typhoon Hagibis caused extensive damage in many parts of Japan. The storm, one of the strongest to hit the country in decades, left 91 people dead, while four remain missing.
Hagibis flooded or damaged more than 85,000 homes. Clean-up is still happening, such as this area of Iwaki City in Fukushima Prefecture.
Japan's agriculture ministry says the damage caused by Typhoon Hagibis to the farming, forestry and fishery industries continues to rise. So far, it has amounted to more than 100 billion yen, or 920 million dollars.
The ministry released an updated report on the financial losses in 38 prefectures on Friday morning.
Besides leaving more than 80 people dead, Typhoon Hagibis hit Japanese farms, forests and fisheries hard. Government officials say the damage tops 70 billion yen, or 650 million dollars, as of Monday afternoon.
36 prefectures are reporting financial losses. Damage to agricultural facilities runs to about 255 million dollars.
Volunteers assisting with recovery efforts after flooding caused by Typhoon Hagibis earlier this month have got the help of some robots to take the strain.
The center of Daigo Town in Ibaraki Prefecture north of Tokyo was submerged after the typhoon caused a river to burst its banks. A local venture business that developed a wearable lumbar-type labor support device has lent six of them to the town's volunteer center.
A heavy downpour dumped more than 100 millimeters of rain per hour over parts of typhoon-ravaged Chiba Prefecture on Saturday morning.
The Meteorological Agency says the combination of damp air flowing into a rain front and a low-pressure system is creating unstable atmospheric conditions over areas of eastern Japan and the Tohoku region in the northeast.
As people in Japan continue to recover from Typhoon Hagibis, the government has designated it an extraordinary disaster, enabling victims to receive special support.
It will be the sixth disaster to be given such a designation since the system was established in 1995 after the Great Hanshin earthquake.
