Typhoon Jebi's name is derived from the Korean word for "swallow". It follows heavy rains, landslides, floods and record-breaking heat that killed hundreds of people in June.
The extensive infrastructural damage has also left more than 1.2 million households without power.

Singapore Airlines was forced to cancel several flights to and from Osaka. The torrential downpour flooded parts of Kansai International Airport's runways, leaving planes grounded and travel plans in tatters.
