Typhoon toll rises to 31
"JAPAN'S deadliest storm in more than a decade unleashed flash floods that washed away entire hillsides, killing 31 people and leaving at least 39
people missing before it veered east into the Pacific Ocean today.
This year's typhoons have far outstripped the previous post-World War II record of six, set in 1990."
EDIT: It was just raised to 51 dead, 30 missing.
