Japan is bracing for flooding and landslides after what could be the strongest typhoon to hit the country in a quarter of a century made landfall on Tuesday.

The strongest typhoon to hit Japan in 25 years made landfall in southern Tokushima Prefecture on September 4, prompting evacuation warnings for hundreds of thousands of residents in the Kinki, Chugoku, Shikoku regions.

"Rainstorms will likely intensify suddenly as the typhoon is approaching while picking up speed", the official said, urging people not to go out unless necessary and prepare for evacuation.

Tides in some areas were the highest since a typhoon in 1961, NHK public television said, with flooding covering the runways at Kansai International Airport in Osaka. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe canceled a scheduled trip to Kyushu, Japan's southernmost main island, to oversee the government's response to the typhoon, Kyodo said.

Jebi has a similar trajectory to Typhoon Cimaron which made landfall on 23 August, disrupting transport but causing limited damage and few injuries.

Josh Donaldson officially traded from Blue Jays to Indians
Donaldson only cleared waivers Friday afternoon, meaning the Blue Jays could freely negotiate with any team. He spent 2011 in the minors and split the 2012 campaign with the Athletics and their triple-A affiliate.

He instructed his cabinet to "take all measures possible".

Television footage showed waves pounding the coastline, sheet metal tumbling across a parking lot and a truck turned on its side. In the city of Osaka, the Universal Studios Japan theme park and USA consulate both were closed. Many schools have been shut in the affected areas as well.

The flooding and landslides proved so deadly in part because many people did not heed evacuation warnings, which are not mandatory.

More than 175,000 people lost power in western Japan, according to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry said, while more than a million people were advised to leave their homes by the Fire and Disaster Management Agency said.
