The precarious road dramatically collapsed in the midst of torrential rain and strong gales caused by Typhoon Lan in Kishiwada in the Japanese region of Osaka.  

A car was pictured veering off the side of the road as floodwater cascaded down the steep slope, sweeping away uprooted trees in its path.

Typhoon Lan made landfall west of Tokyo on Monday as a category 2 storm, setting off landslides and mass flooding as rivers burst their banks.

Lan sideswiped Tokyo while smashing through Japan after powering north for days as an intense Category 4 storm.

At least four people were killed, including a man who was hit by falling scaffolding, a fisherman tending to his boat, and a young woman whose car had been washed away by floodwaters.

Another casualty was left comatose by injuries and a man was missing, NHK public television said. Around 130 others suffered minor injuries.

Typhoon Lan damage: Dramatic rescue of a man from a holm by the Tamagawa river

One dramatic photograph showed a man being winched to safety after he and seven other people were stranded in a holm by the Tamagawa river.

Rivers burst their banks in several parts of Japan and fishing boats were tossed up on land. A container ship was stranded after being swept onto a harbour wall but all 19 crew members escaped injury.

By Monday afternoon the storm had been downgraded to a tropical depression and it was in the Pacific, east of the northernmost main island of Hokkaido, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

Some 80,000 people in Koriyama, a city 124 miles (200 km) north of Tokyo, were ordered to evacuate as a river neared the top of its banks, NHK said.

Several hundred houses in western Japan were flooded. "My grandchild lives over there. The house is fine, but the area is flooded, and they can't get out," one man told NHK.
