Sixty-five people were injured in a typhoon that cut electricity to more than 331,000 homes in southern Japan, according to Japanese TV channel NHK.

More than four thousand people were evacuated from their homes near the city of Naha, capital of the Okinawa prefecture, as the typhoon, “Dzhelavat,” swarmed the region with wind gusts of up to 60 meters per second.

All flights from Naha Airport scheduled for Saturday have been canceled.

The typhoon is the 17th of the season to hit the northwest Pacific Ocean.

According to Japan’s National Meteorological Agency, the typhoon is set to hit the Japanese mainland by Sunday.
