Jebi, Japan’s largest typhoon in a quarter century, has left behind it a trail of wreckage. Some of the most pronounced damage was seen near the country’s shoreline, where massive gusts toppled shipping containers, blew tankers into seawalls and took down other infrastructure. Kansai International Airport, which serves Osaka, is still closed, with thousands of travelers stranded.

Aerial photos from the storms aftermath show its terrifying power, which is reported to have killed 11 people and brought some of the strongest winds portions of the country had ever seen.
