Another typhoon

15 Oct

Another typhoon is headed for 本州 (mainland Japan).

It’s forecast to hit the 関東地方 (Tokyo area) tonight and tomorrow (Tuesday, 2013 October 15th – Wednesday, October 16th).

Here is a recent meteorological map of Japan.  The yellow areas are under a “typhoon advisory” and the orange areas are under a more serious “typhoon warning“.

Tokyo, on this map, is colored orange.

      Yeah, very strong winds!
      But it’ll be past Tokyo soon.

      Hopefully Fukushima will be fine when the typhoon gets up there!

    They’ve said that this is the strongest typhoon to hit Tokyo in a decade!

      Yes, we have some emergency supplies. Hopefully, we won’t be needing them. This typhoon is forecast to pass Tokyo by noon tomorrow (it’s 10:30PM now.)

      I’ll “tweet” as often as I can.

    it’s a mighty storm, some areas in the south have lost power apparently. Stay safe up there!

      Yes, the winds have reached up to 234 km/hr (145 mph) !
      Everyone in mainland Japan should stay indoors until it passes!
