Typhoon Neoguri was downgraded from a super typhoon to a storm by late Wednesday after losing strength, reported CBC News.

But it toppled trees, flooded cars and bent railings in Okinawa, which experienced strong winds and its heaviest rainfall in a half century.

According to The Japan Times, at least four people have died while the Okinawan raised the injury toll to 30.
