TOKYO -- One week after Typhoon Hagibis tore through Japan, the scars are undeniable. From the roughly 4,600 people still living in shelters to the damaged rice paddies in the north, the country faces a long and arduous path back to normalcy.

As of Saturday, 79 people have died and 10 remain missing. Approximately 45,000 homes have been submerged, according to the government. While the water outage has mostly been lifted, some 80,000 homes still have no running water.
