At least 6 dead, 20 missing after Typhoon Talas dumps heavy rain on Japan

Typhoon Talas slammed into western Japan from the Pacific on Saturday bringing heavy rain and fierce winds and leaving at least one person dead and three missing, officials said. --PHOTO: AP TOKYO (REUTERS) - Two people were killed and dozens injured as a strong tropical storm landed in western Japan on Saturday with heavy rains causing floods that damaged homes and disrupted traffic. Tropical storm Talas hit the island of Shikoku in western Japan at around 0100 GMT (9am Singapore time) and was moving north at a slow pace, Japan's Meteorological Agency said.

The Meteorological Agency expects the storm to finish passing through Japan early on Sunday and continue heading north into the Sea of Japan.
