Typhoon Jebi made landfall near Osaka, Japan on Tuesday, causing widespread damage from severe winds and flooding.

Japan began to clean up on Wednesday, the morning after Typhoon Jebi hit the main island near Osaka, causing widespread damage from severe winds and flooding.

So far, at least 11 people have been confirmed dead and 470 people injured, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said Wednesday. Meanwhile, some 530,000 households are still without power.

The most powerful storm to hit Japan in 25 years left much devastation in its wake.

Kansai International Airport, one of the country's busiest airports, remained closed on Wednesday after the storm left the runways flooded.

The airport is located on an artificial island in Osaka Bay and is a key airport for both tourism and trade. It could take several days to a week to reopen the airport.

The region damaged by Jebi is huge for exporting semiconductors. There's a fear that the economy could take a hit if Kansai Airport isn't reopened soon.
