Typhoon Hagibis Slams Tokyo, Millions Asked To Evacuate

More than six million people were advised to evacuate Tokyo as Typhoon Hagibis bore down on Saturday.

HuffPost reports one man was killed and more than 60 people were injured.

It made landfall on Japan’s main island of Honshu on Saturday evening.

The storm burst some river banks and threatened to flood the low-lying city, as it coincides with high tide.

In the Philippine language Tagalog, 'Hagibis' means 'speed.'
