Typhoon Jelewat passed through Japan, bringing strong winds and rolling a car over several times. The gusts sent a dumpster flying into another nearby car.

At noon Sunday, the storm was packing winds of up to 144 kilometers (90 miles) per hour.

The typhoon left more than 50 people with minor injuries on the southern island of Okinawa on Saturday. Thousands of homes were without electricity.

Dozens of trains were suspended Sunday in coastal areas around Tokyo, and some 300 domestic flights were to be grounded throughout the day.

Up to half a meter (20 inches) of rain is expected in central Japan through Monday.
