The large typhoon that swept through the Japanese archipelago this weekend lessened in intensity Tuesday morning as it veered out to sea, leaving at least two people dead and 91 injured.

Typhoon Vongfong made landfall twice in Japan on Monday — in Kagoshima Prefecture in the southwest and Osaka Prefecture in the west — and passed inland of Tokyo, causing extensive disruption to airports and railways on the last day of a three-day weekend.

Local governments issued evacuation advisories to 1.76 million people nationwide.
