SCRIPT
Strong winds battered the Japanese city of Ichihara on Saturday, leaving one man dead after his car overturned and dozens of homes wrecked, as the whole country braces for the arrival of Typhoon Hagibis.
Footage shows damaged buildings, vehicles and roads in Ichihara, some 60 kilometres (37 miles) east of Tokyo.
Japan's Meteorological Agency has reportedly classified Typhoon Hagibis as "very strong," with heavy downpours predicted in Tokyo and the prefectures of Gunma, Saitama, Kanagawa, Yamanashi, Nagano and Shizuoka. The storm is expected to make landfall on Japan's Pacific coast on Saturday evening.
