Typhoon No. 14 hit Japan with many casualties, Puerto Rico island-wide blackout due to hurricane = Korean coverage
Typhoon No. 14 hit Japan, killing two people and injuring more than 100. Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory located in the Caribbean Sea, was hit by a hurricane that caused power outages throughout the island. More than 1,500 people have died in floods in Pakistan.

The Japanese public broadcast, NHK, revealed that the number of casualties caused by Typhoon No. 14 was calculated in this way. Typhoon No. 14, which passed through Kyushu in the southwestern part of Japan, landed in Izumo City, Shimane Prefecture, facing the Sea of Japan at 4:30 pm on September 19th, and is heading northeast at a speed of 35 kilometers per hour.

The central pressure is 975 hectopascals, the maximum wind speed is 30 meters per second, and the maximum instantaneous wind speed is 45 meters per second.

Hatsukaichi City and Saiki Ward in Hiroshima Prefecture, and Iwakuni City in Yamaguchi Prefecture experienced heavy rain of 350 to 450 mm for 24 hours until noon the day before. The Ebino city in Miyazaki Prefecture had the heaviest amount of rain, with 725.5 mm of rainfall over the 24-hour period up to 9:00 a.m. on the same day.

On 18th, Prime Minister Kishida recommended that "if you feel even the slightest danger, evacuate without hesitation," and postponed by one day his schedule to attend the United Nations General Assembly (scheduled to depart on 19th) in New York.

The hurricane made landfall on the southwestern coast of Puerto Rico around 3:20 p.m. on 18th, according to the National Hurricane Center.

"Flooding is expected to continue into the night. At least 10 rivers have already flooded, so we should stay away from rivers, streams and flood areas as much as possible," said a meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. They went on saying "There are still reports of damage to structures, so we need to be careful." A government official told that "At least one person has died."
