Flights cancelled but no major damage as typhoon hits Japan

AP  |  Tokyo 

An offshore is bringing rain and high winds to Japan's northeast coast as it tracks north after giving a good soak overnight.

Airlines cancelled dozens of flights to and from and other affected areas today, but no major damage has been reported.

Japanese media say five people have been injured, including two who fell and broke bones.

Shanshan had weakened somewhat by midday, with maximum sustained winds of 108 kilometres (67 miles) per hour and gusts of up to 162 kph (100 mph).

It has not made landfall, sparing from the worst of its rain and winds.
