Typhoon Noru prompted evacuation notices in at least half a dozen prefectures over fears of landslides and rising rivers as it brought heavy rains and flooding to the Hokuriku and Kansai regions on Tuesday.

As of Tuesday afternoon, at least two people were reported dead in Kagoshima Prefecture and over 50 injured as the large, slow-moving typhoon passed through Kyushu and Shikoku earlier in the week before moving on to Kansai, Tokai and the Sea of Japan on Tuesday morning.
