    Background: TYPHOON "WILDA" LEFT 30 PEOPLE DEAD AND AT LEAST 360 INJURED AS IT SWEPT THROUGH SOUTHERN AND WESTERN JAPAN YESTERDAY (FRIDAY). A FURTHER 11 PEOPLE WERE MISSING AFTER THE TYPHOON HAD PASSED AND JAPANESE CITIZENS WERE INSPECTING THE DAMAGE DONE TO NEARLY 50,000 HOMES.

    THE 20TH TYPHOON OF THE SEASON, "WILDA" CAPSIZED SEVERAL OCEAN-GOING VESSELS IN KOBE HARBOUR, ONE OF WHICH WAS A 10,000 TON NORWEGIAN VESSEL, THE "SURNA". AIRCRAFT ARRIVALS WERE DELAYED AT TOKYO AIRPORT BECAUSE OF THE STORM.

    HIGH WINDS PARALYSED MANY DISTRICTS, BRIDGES BEING SWEPT AWAY, AND MAIN ROADS MADE IMPASSABLE BY DEBRIS. THE OLYMPIC IN THE TOKYO SUBURB OF YOYOGI WAS LASHED BY THE STORM. BUNGALOWS OCCUPIED BY INTERNATIONAL COMPETITORS WERE DAMAGES, TREES UPROOTED AND FLAGPOLES BATTERED. CYCLISTS PRACTISING FOR THE GAMES, THOUGH PEDALLING FURIOUSLY, MADE NO PROGRESS AGAINST THE TYPHOON'S FORCE.

    WINDS OF 150 MILES PER HOUR WERE RECORDED AT ONE WEATHER STATION AND IN SOME PLACES MORE THAN 3 INCHES OF RAIN FELL IN THREE HOURS. IN TOKYO ITSELF RAIN HAS BEEN STEADILY FALLING FOR THE PAST 48 HOURS.
