Japan Typhoon: More than 50 people seriously injured as fierce storm barrels towards Korea

Japan has suffered the worst of the storm which left nearly 430,000 homes in the Kyushu region without power early on Monday. Typhoon Haishen has forced factories, schools and businesses across western parts of the country to close.

According to Kyodo News at noon local time on Monday, 52 people were left seriously injured due to the impact of the storm.

The storm hit Kyushu, Okayama and Yamaguchi before the easing.

Hundreds of train services and flights were cancelled due to the typhoon.

The powerful storm also caused Japan’s coast guard to halt its search for missing sailors from a ship that sank due to Typhoon Maysak earlier this month.

The cargo ship was carrying 43 crew members and 6,000 cows.

It went missing last week and three members of the crew were rescued alive.

Typhoon Haishen has hit the southern tip of the Korean peninsula and resort island of Jeju, according to Reuters.

High winds have already cut power to almost 5,000 households in the area.

It left at least two people dead and thousands without power.

The Japanese broadcaster, NHK, said four people were cut by glass after the windows of an evacuation centre were blown in due to Haishen.

Approximately 8 million people in Japan were asked to evacuate the storm’s path.

Before the typhoons blasted Japan, the country was still recovering from heavy rains and flooding that hit the country in July killing 83 people.

Haishen is now heading towards Busan, South Korea’s second largest city, according to the country’s weather agency.

The typhoon has carried top sustained winds of up to 90mph.

It is also expected to move close to North Korea’s port city of Chongjin late on Monday.

North Korea’s agriculture sector is reportedly already vulnerable due to severe weather.

The storms and floods have raised concerns over North Korea’s food supply.

On Saturday, the country’s leader Kim Jong-un visited coastal areas hit by Typhoon Maysak.



Man injured in dog attack that killed mother

MARGATE, FLA. (WSVN) – A South Florida man is sharing his story days after, he said, his newly adopted dog went on the attack, injuring him and killing his elderly mother.

Joseph Varanese struggled to hold back tears while discussing the death of his 84-year-old mother, Carolyn Varanese, at their home in the area of Southwest First Street and 63rd Avenue in Margate, Thursday night.

“This is not normal. She shouldn’t have died. My mom shouldn’t have lost her life because of this stupid freaking animal,” he said.

Varanese showed 7News punctures to his arm that he suffered during last Friday night’s mauling,

“These are healing now, but this is like — these are the worst. He dug into my muscle,” he said.

Varanese said he had recently adopted Smokey, a 5-year-old pit bull mix, and the animal had only been in their home for about three weeks.

“That freaking dog, he just blew up, man. He bit her in the ankle,” he said.

Before Friday, Varanese said, Smokey didn’t show any signs of aggression, but as he was helping his elderly mother to the bathroom, the canine snapped.

“The dog started freaking out. I mean, it was like a scene, a wild animal on the National Geographic Channel, where they’re ripping it,” he said. “I just couldn’t see or stand watching it, so I tried everything.”

Varanese said his mother had overcome a battle with cancer, was wheelchair bound and on dialysis.

The animal attack was just too much for Carolyn’s frail body. She was pronounced dead inside their home.

Her son, meanwhile, spent the night at the hospital.

“I got whiplash. I might have shoulder damage. I don’t know,” he said.

Now Varanese has been left heartbroken and bruised.

He described his mother as a strong-willed and generous person who he had been taking care of for the past 16 years.

“I would never, ever harm my mom. We had a beautiful relationship,” he said.

As he picks up the pieces, Varanese said the guilt is almost too much to bear.

The grieving son said he has siblings near Orlando, as well as several nieces and nephews, he’s still not sure what’s next in terms of planning funeral arrangements due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’ve got to take care of all this stuff. This is hard. It’s very hard,” he said. “Nobody needs to go through stuff like this. Nobody.”

Smokey was turned over to Broward County Animal Services.

On Friday morning, officials confirmed at the directive of Margate Animal Control, the dog was humanely euthanized.
