Usagi has uprooted trees and cut power in Kyushu, Japan.

A Typhoon in Japan's island of Kyushu has injured 18 people, causing electricity outages with thousands of people abandoning their homes.


The typhoon known as 'Usagi', meaning rabbit in Japanese, struck Kyushu, a southern island in Japan late Thursday with winds of up to 180km/h and waves as high as 8 meters.

Usagi is the second major storm hitting Japan this season after three people died earlier this month when Typhoon Man-Yi swept across Okinawa and Kyushu.
