  2. 2. TOKYO — More than 50 people were evacuated from a storm-battered island Wednesday, where mudslides left 45 dead or missing last week, ahead of another typhoon expected to strike this weekend. A total of 32 mostly elderly people in need of nursing care, attended by 19 others, disembarked from a chartered high-speed ferry at Tokyo port after a two-hour ride from Oshima, some 120 kilometers to the south, officials said. A military helicopter evacuated three other people from the volcanic Pacific island on the same day, said Masahiro Mukoyama, a senior official at the Oshima town office. The town has chartered a ferry to get more people out on Thursday and later, the official said, as Typhoon Francisco lurked in the northwestern Pacific on course to hit Japan in a few days’ time.
