Japan's Meteorological Agency warns it could bring as much rain as 1958’s Typhoon Kanogawa that left 1200 people dead.

Typhoon Hagibis is shaping up to be a perfect storm.

It could break records, Japan's Meteorological Agency warned on Friday.

In 1958, Typhoon Kanogawa left 1200 Japanese people dead.

The agency says Hagibis – already one of the strongest storms on Earth this year - could bring as much rainfall as Kanogawa did.

Airlines have already cancelled about 1600 flights scheduled for Saturday.

The mega-storm also compelled organisers to cancel two Rugby World Cup matches on Saturday.

It is doubtful whether Sunday’s match between Scotland and Japan will go ahead.

Japan Meteorological Agency has a nifty animation where you can track the expected path and intensity of Typhoon Hagibis.
