Typhoon Lan struck Japan early Monday with heavy rains and strong winds, leaving at least two people dead before the storm moved back out to sea.

The typhoon made landfall southwest of Tokyo after its outer bands dumped rain on Japan for several days, triggering landslides and floods in some areas.

Japanese media reported about 90 injured in addition to the two deaths related to the storm.

Tens of thousands of people had been advised to evacuate ahead of Typhoon Lan's arrival.

The storm also led airlines to cancel hundreds of flights, and disrupted some train and ferry services.
