TOKYO - Typhoon Nangka barrelled across the western end of Japan's largest main island on Friday, snarling transport, leaving at least two men dead and prompting authorities to advise nearly 100,000 people to evacuate.

Rivers burst their banks in the western prefecture of Wakayama after some parts of Honshu, Japan's largest main island, received more than 600 mm (23 inches) of rain since the storm began to near on Thursday.

Two men drowned, one of them a 71-year-old man who fell into a flooded ditch while repairing a window, NHK national television said. Some 35 people were injured.
