At least six people were reported killed in Japan as typhoon Jebi sliced across the west on Tuesday, creating havoc at airports and damaging buildings.

The storm made landfall on Shikoku, the smallest main island, around noon. It raked across the western part of the largest main island, Honshu, near the city of Kobe, several hours later, before heading out to the Sea of Japan in the evening.
