At least three people were injured and almost 100 buildings damaged after strong gusts of wind wreaked havoc in central Japan on Saturday evening.

According to city officials in Makinohara, Shizuoka prefecture, the three people sustained light injuries and a total of 97 structures were confirmed to be damaged. However, there were no reports of serious injuries as of Monday.

Japan's meteorological agency said the winds could have been generated by a tornado given their strength. They tore off the roofs of buildings, shattered windows and knocked vehicles on to their sides.
