Cities in eastern China suspended ferry services and flights were cancelled on Sunday in Japan as Typhoon Hinnamnor, the strongest global storm this year, blew its way past Taiwan and the Koreas with fierce winds and heavy rains. Hinnamnor has moved gradually through the East China Sea with maximum sustained winds of 175 kilometres per hour, according to the Hong Kong Observatory. In Japan, the powerful typhoon knocked down some trees in Miyako islands of Okinawa Prefecture on Sunday and had temporarily cut power to hundreds of households. Footage on Japanese television showed trees violently shaken by the storm, with fierce rainfall hitting the pavement.
