Thousands of homes without power as Typhoon Nanmadol leaves Japan

One person is missing in the western prefecture of Hiroshima and 115 others were injured in western Japan, the agency said. Most of the injuries were minor, involving people who had fallen in the rain or been hit by shards of broken glass or flying objects.

More than 130,000 homes, mostly in the Kyushu region, were still without power Tuesday morning, according to the Ministry of Economy and Industry. Many convenience stores were closed at some point and some supply distributions were delayed.

Most transport returned to normal on Tuesday, when commuters returned to work after a three-day weekend. Bullet trains and most ground transportation resumed operations, but dozens of flights were grounded in northeast Japan.

The tropical storm tracked into the Pacific Ocean off the northern coast of Japan, the Japan Meteorological Agency said on Tuesday.
