Powerful typhoon pummels Tokyo region, disrupting transport

A powerful typhoon with strong winds and rain battered the Tokyo region early Monday, sparking evacuation warnings to tens of thousands, widespread blackouts and transport disruption.
Typhoon Faxai, packing winds of up to 216 kilometers per hour, made landfall in Chiba just east of the capital before dawn, after barreling through Tokyo Bay.
About 5,000 people in Chiba and Kanagawa prefectures were ordered to evacuate, public broadcaster NHK reported on its Twitter feed.
Authorities issued non-compulsory evacuation warnings to more than 390,000 people, as forecasters cautioned the rain and wind could reach "record" proportions.
