Rescue crews continued to search for missing people after a typhoon caused serious damage in central and northern Japan, killing as many as 36 people.

Typhoon Hagibis, which hit Japan’s main island on Saturday, unleashed torrents of rain and strong winds that left thousands of homes flooded, damaged or without power. Kyodo news service reported Monday that the typhoon killed 36 people and that 16 more were missing. Authorities warned of more mudslides with rain forecast for the area. 

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said late Sunday that more than 66,000 homes were still without power. Tohoku Electric Co. said 5,600 homes still lacked electricity in the northern prefectures of Miyagi, Iwate and Fukushima.
