At least two people were killed by Typhoon Nanmadol, which brought with it fierce gusts and record rainfall to the western part of Japan, disrupting transportation and forcing factories to close.

Early Monday morning, Nanmadol roared onto the main island of Honshu after having made landfall near Kagoshima city late Sunday.

Typhoons form in the Pacific Ocean between 180- and 100-degrees East longitude in the Northern Hemisphere.

Nearly a third of all tropical cyclones occur in this part of the world every year, making the North-western Pacific Basin the most active tropical storm basin on Earth.
