A deadly tropical storm that brought heavy rain, strong winds and flooding to Japan moved into the Pacific Ocean on Tuesday. 

At least two deaths were reported on the island of Kyushu on Monday, according to the Fire and Disaster Management Agency.

New damage was reported where Typhoon Nanmadol struck over the weekend before heading north.

The Economy and Industry Ministry said a wall was damaged at a Japan Aerospace and Exploration Agency (JAXA) space center on Tanegashima island.
