    Typhoon Chaba sweeps Japan

    Powerful Typhoon Chaba was racing toward the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido on Tuesday after leaving a trail of at least six dead and four missing following torrential rains that forced thousands into shelters.

    Chaba, one of the strongest storms to hit Japan this year, at one point was generating winds of up to 130 miles per hour as it crossed the southwestern island of Kyushu, near the highest on record for the area.

    Early on Tuesday the typhoon was traveling over the Sea of Japan and was expected to reach Hokkaido later in the day.
