At least 19 people have been killed and more than 50 are missing after powerful Typhoon Talas ripped through western Japan, local media reports.

The storm brought heavy rain and winds of up to 108km/h (68mph) after making landfall on Shikoku island on Saturday.

Talas has now moved over Japan and into the Sea of Japan (East Sea), Japan's Meteorological Agency said on Sunday.

Some 460,000 people in parts of western and central Japan were issued with evacuation orders and advisories, Kyodo News agency reported.
