Heavy winds in Japan are causing a mess.

So far the typhoon-strength winds have killed two people and injured dozens more.

Tens of thousands are without power, and large parts of the country are at a standstill due to the high winds.

Triggered by a low pressure system, the storm lashed across Japan's main island of Honshu, packing winds of 67 miles per hour.

Officials are urging everyone to stay indoors.

The storm has grounded more than 500 domestic flights and halted commuter trains in and around Tokyo.
