The toll of death and destruction from a massive typhoon that tore through central and northern Japan continued to climb Tuesday, as the government said it was considering approving a special budget for the ongoing disaster response and eventual reconstruction. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told a parliamentary session that the number of deaths tied to Typhoon Hagibis had climbed to 53 and was expected to rise, as at least another nine people are presumed dead. Lawmakers prayed in silence for the victims before starting the session. Abe pledged to do the utmost for the safety and rescue of those missing or those who had to evacuate.

The words " Water, Food," are written on the ground in Marumori town, Miyagi prefecture, Japan. Typhoon Hagibis hit Japan's main island unleashing strong winds and dumping historic rainfall that caused more than 200 rivers in central and northern Japan to overflow, leaving thousands of homes flooded, damaged or without power.

 Search-and-rescue operations continued in parts of central, east and northeast Japan that were struck over the weekend by the super typhoon Hagibis which left more than 30 people dead and caused severe flooding. Over 110,000 members of the police, fire fighting and Self-Defence Forces were taking part in the operations, Efe news quoted public broadcaster NHK as saying in a report. Rescue efforts could be hampered as rain is forecast in the affected areas on Monday evening and authorities have asked people to exercise caution amid increased risk of flooding and landslides following record rainfall due to the passage of the typhoon. The government has also asked people to stay away from dangerous areas such as rivers and mountain slopes.<br /><br />Houses are submerged in muddy waters as the Abukuma river was overflown by Typhoon Hagibis, in Tamakawa.
