On 12 October 2019, a large and powerful typhoon, Hagibis, locally named as Typhoon No.19 made a landfall in Shizuoka Prefecture, about 100 km southwest of Tokyo, passing through eastern and north-eastern regions until early morning of 13 October. Central and northern parts of the country were severely affected by strong winds and heavy rainfall and subsequent floods and geohazards.

From 24 to 25 October 2019, low pressure passed through western, eastern and northern regions along the Pacific coast, bringing another heavy rainfall in the Pacific coast of Kanto and Tohoku regions, especially Chiba and Fukushima Prefectures. The rainfall resulted in floods and geohazards again, causing human and physical damages to the typhoon-hit areas.
