On Typhoon-hit Izu Oshima, a search for missing 19 resumes

The evacuation advisory issued to around 2,300 residents on the typhoon-hit island of Izu Oshima was lifted on Monday morning amid improved weather condition, allowing local authorities to resume the suspended search for the missing.

The municipal government of Oshima issued the evacuation advisory on Saturday as the prospect of more heavy rain was feared to worsen the situation on the island, south of Tokyo. While the advisory was in effect, the search for 19 missing people was suspended.

As of Sunday night, some 590 evacuees were in shelters.
