At least 10 people have been killed by Typhoon Jebi, the worst storm to hit Japan in 25 years.

Jebi left a trail of destruction across the west of the country, hitting major cities like Kyoto and Osaka.

Flights, trains, and ferries were canceled but thousands of passengers stranded at Osaka’s international airport have since been evacuated. As the winds slow down and move north, people are being urged to stay alert for landslides and floods.

At least 300 people have been injured as a result of the typhoon, according to government spokesman Yoshihide Suga.

As of Wednesday morning, evacuation advisories had been issued for more than 1.2 million people.

More than 30,000 people were given stronger but still not mandatory evacuation orders, the Fire and Disaster Management Agency said.

Footage on social media showed the 100-meter (328-foot) tall Ferris wheel in Osaka spinning rapidly in the storm despite being switched off.
