At least 26 dead as Typhoon Hagibis slams JapanTens of thousands of rescuers were working through Sunday night to reach people feared trapped in Japan by landslides and floods caused by a powerful typhoon that killed at least 26, officials and local media said. Typhoon Hagibis moved away from land on Sunday morning, but while it largely spared the capital it left a trail of destruction in surrounding regions. More than 100,000 rescuers -- including 31,000 troops -- were working through the night to reach people feared trapped after torrential rain caused landslides and filled rivers until they burst their banks.
