Tokyo Supermarket Shelves Empty as Locals Prepare for Typhoon Hagibis

Goods flew off store shelves on Friday, October 11, as Typhoon Hagibis veered toward central Japan.

This footage shows empty shelves in what is said to be a supermarket in Tokyo’s Taito ward.

Hagibis made landfall in central Japan on Saturday, October 12, killing at least two people and injuring at least 86 across 27 prefectures, according to a report from The Japan Times.

The storm was expected to bring heavy rainfall and possible mudslides mirroring 1958’s Typhoon Ida, which left 888 people dead and 381 missing, NHK and The Japan Times reported. Credit: @daisuke6500 via Storyful
