As of Sunday afternoon, Typhoon Hagibis had killed at least 33 people and left another 19 missing after it tore through Japan on Saturday and early Sunday with winds around the eye of the storm reaching up to 90 mph. Several cities across the country experienced flooding after levees failed amid record rainfall. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the damage from the storm, which was the largest to make landfall in Japan in decades, was "enormous," and the military was dispatched to help rescue victims. Despite the fallout, many people were well-prepared for Hagibis, and the damage reportedly could have been much worse without the proper planning.
