Japan braced for the worst storm ever, as Typhoon Jebi struck with very strong winds of nearly 216 kmph. Nearly 600 flights were cancelled and airports were forced to shut down as the storm struck Shikoku and Honshu. Most companies urged their employees to work from home. It is reported that at least six persons lost their lives and 126 others are injured. A heavy tanker, pushed by the strong winds, crashed into the Kansai airport bridge. Over a million people have been asked to evacuate.
