22 09 2011

Typhoon Roke slammed Japan killing at least 10 people.

At least five people were missing and hundreds of people were injured.

The typhoon brought heavy rain and strong winds; and caused flooding and triggered landslides.

But it did not cause any further damage to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plan.
