In Photos: Typhoon Hagibis Leaves Deaths, Destruction in Japan

The biggest storm to hit Japan in decades left deaths and destruction in its wake, as it battered the central and eastern parts of the country. 

At its peak, Typhoon Hagibis was packing winds of up to 252 kilometers (157 miles) per hour, and it moved away from Japan by Sunday morning. Hundreds of thousands of people were without power, and heavy rain destroyed river banks throughout Japan, leading to flooded homes and collapsed bridges.
