All broadcasters gave prominent coverage to the devastation wreaked by Typhoon Hagibis, focusing on the continued search for missing individuals and the authorities’ efforts to grasp the scope of property damage caused primarily by the flooding of dozens of rivers across central and eastern Japan. According to the networks, approximately 80 people have been either confirmed dead or missing. The reports added that Prime Minister Abe told the Diet earlier in the day that the GOJ will designate the destruction as an “extremely severe disaster” to enable the central government to subsidize reconstruction efforts.
