Typhoon Nanmadol crashed off the coast of southern Japan on Sunday and caused massive infrastructure disruptions, including power outages and forcing thousands of people to evacuate.

The Japanese Meteorological Agency said the typhoon was supposed to cause “unprecedented” wind and waves and told residents they should evacuate if they are in the affected areas.

The typhoon landed in the city of Kagoshima, which is located in Kyushu, a southern island of Japan.

According to the meteorological agency, the area could see about 20 inches of rain by Monday. The agency advised Kagoshima residents to stay inside and go to the upper floors as storm and high wave warnings were in place.
