A strong typhoon battering southwestern Japan has cut power supply in 11,000 households, Kyushu Electric Power Company, an energy business powering seven prefectures, said Saturday.

Noru, a category 5 typhoon, has winds of over 78 miles per hour and is expected to bring heaviest rains in half a century, meteorologists said.

Japan’s Meteorological Agency predicted that the typhoon would hit the Kagoshima prefecture, before slowly moving north, and reach the Kyushu island on Sunday.
