The death toll from Hagibis, considered to be one of the most destructive typhoons in the country's recent history, previously stood at 58.

Hagibis struck Japan on Saturday, bringing with itself torrential rains and heavy winds, with rivers going out of banks, causing massive floods across the country. Chiba prefecture was even hit by a tornado. According to NHK broadcaster, protective dams on 37 rivers were destroyed, while 161 rivers in 16 Japanese prefectures suffered floods. Fukushima, Miyagi, Kanagawa, Tochigi, Saitama, Nagano and Shizuoka prefectures are among those most affected by the deadly typhoon.
