UPDATE: Powerful typhoon Jelawat hits Japan mainland; 1 reported dead

TOKYO (AFP) - Powerful Typhoon Jelawat made landfall Sunday on the Japanese mainland a day after hitting southern Okinawa island, where local media said it left one dead and some 140 people injured. Packing winds of up to 180kmh, the typhoon made landfall in central Aichi prefecture at around 7pm (6pm Singapore time) and was moving up the main island of Honshu, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. A 29-year-old man was swept away by high waves when Jelawat hit Okinawa and was later confirmed dead, while at least 140 people were injured in eight prefectures, according to public broadcaster NHK. The typhoon is forecast to churn northeastwards towards Tokyo over the next 24 hours and bring torrential rainfall and towering waves up to 10m high.
