At least two people were killed and many injured as a mammoth typhoon struck Japan, with dangerous winds, threatening floods as well as dangerous mudslides. 

Typhoon Lan made landfall early on Monday along Japan's southern coast near Minamiizu. The typhoon reached winds of 165 km/h, making it a Category 2 storm, and more than 200 000 people have been ordered to evacuate, according to the Fire and Disaster Management Agency, with a further 2.2 million homes under advisory to prepare for evacuation. 

In Fukuoka, a city in the southern island prefecture of Kyushu, a 63-year-old man died when falling construction scaffolding struck him, police in the city told CNN. Police in Osaka, in central Japan, said that a woman was found dead in a flooded car in the city, though they could not be certain the incident was related to the typhoon.

Although the typhoon is weakening, Tokyo is expected to get hit with possibly damaging winds and heavy rains, CNN meteorologist Haley Brink said.You can see some of the extreme floodings that typhoon Lan has caused in the video below:
