Two people have died and nine others are missing after Typhoon Hagibis brought fierce winds and record-breaking rainfall to Japan.

A 50-year-old man was killed near Tokyo in a car overturned by huge gusts, while another person died after being washed away in a car.

Several people are missing in a town near Tokyo after a landslide destroyed two houses.

Up to 30,000 properties may have been damaged or destroyed.

More than 270,000 households lost power, public broadcaster NHK said.

About six million people were advised to leave their homes before the typhoon had even arrived.

An earthquake measuring 5.3, according to the US Geological Survey, shook the areas which had been drenched by rainfall. The earthquake was in the ocean off Chiba, near Tokyo.
