Typhoon Haishen battered Japan's southern islands over the weekend, unleashing torrential rains, lashing trees -- and is now heading towards the Korean peninsula.
Carrying winds of up to 70 miles per hour, the storm left nearly 300,000 houses in southern Japan without power and forced nearly 2 million people to evacuate the region.
And the Kyodo news agency reported that several were still missing, while over 50 people had been injured.
The area was still recovering from heavy rains and flooding in July that killed 83 people.
Typhoon Haishen comes just days after Typhoon Maysak smashed into the Korean peninsula, leaving at least two dead and thousands without power.
North Korea, which bore the brunt of both Maysak and Typhoon Bavi a week earlier, is also in Haishen's trajectory.
Live footage on state TV showed trees shaking and waves rising in Gangwon province, which borders the South.
North Korea's agriculture sector is particularly vulnerable to severe weather, and this summer's storms and floods have raised concerns over the country's tenuous food situation.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made an appearance on Saturday(September 5) and toured the coastal areas hit by Maysak, and ordered party members to join the recovery effort.
