People in northern Japan are dealing with the aftereffects of a powerful storm.
Lionrock ripped through the region devastated by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

It has now moved out to the Sea of Japan and become a low pressure system.

People in Tohoku and the northern island of Hokkaido are dealing with heavy rains, strong winds and rough seas.

Officials also issued mudslide warnings.
They say many parts of the area had one month’s worth of rainfall in just 2 days.

The storm was the first typhoon to strike the Pacific side of Tohoku in recorded history.
