Since making landfall in southern Japan as the equivalent of a strong Category 2 hurricane, the deadly Typhoon Nanmadol has weakened — though it packed a punch on Monday, bringing heavy rainfall and gusty winds to a vast swath of Japan’s islands.

The storm killed at least two people since it hit Japan’s Kagoshima prefecture, according to reporting from Reuters. One man was found dead in a car on a flooded-out farm, while another man died when his cottage was hit by a landslide.

At least one person is missing, and dozens of other storm-related injuries have been reported, according to Reuters.

The storm made landfall Sunday evening local time with a central pressure of 935 millibars, making it the fourth-strongest typhoon on record to make landfall in Japan, with historical records dating back to 1951. It hit land with winds around 110 miles per hour.

As Nanmadol approached the Japanese coast, photographers caught intense shots of massive waves crashing ashore. In advance of the storm, more than 8 million people in southern and western Japan were asked to evacuate their homes. Experts warned that the storm could end up being one of the most destructive typhoons in decades to strike Japan.
