Typhoon Talim grounds Japanese flights

A powerful typhoon made landfall in southern Japan over the weekend, bringing strong winds and heavy rain and causing severe disruption to the country’s transport system.

Typhoon Talim moved northeast along the country’s islands with winds of up to 105 miles an hour, flooding many parts of the nation and bringing flights and trains to a halt.

Japanese news outlet NHK reports that more than 800 flights were cancelled on Sunday and at least 272 domestic services – mostly to and from Hokkaido and Tohoku – have been cancelled today due to remaining strong winds, while some train services in northern Japan have been suspended.
