Powerful typhoon heads north after hitting Shikoku region

TOKYO, Aug. 10, Kyodo

A powerful typhoon began heading north after making landfall in Kochi Prefecture in western Japan's Shikoku region and hitting Hyogo Prefecture on Sunday, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

Typhoon Halong bringing heavy rain and strong winds across wide areas of Japan including those centered on Tokyo and Nagoya is expected to travel through western Japan toward the Sea of Japan later in the day, the weather agency said.

Rainfall brought by this typhoon has exceeded 1,000 millimeters in Umaji and 900 mm in Niyodogawa, both in Kochi Prefecture. Torrential rain was also recorded in Tokushima and Mie prefectures.


1.6 million people advised to evacuate reported by Swedish news.

shocked.gif That's an insane amount of rain, almost unnatural. I can't help but be concerned over the foundations of Fukushima.
Once again, natural disaster strikes and all these years later we still have the same set of problems. This is a time bomb, just a matter of when.

TOKYO (AP) — A tropical storm was moving out into the Sea of Japan on Sunday after lashing the country with rain and winds, leaving one person dead, more than 50 injured and prompting evacuation alerts for about 1.2 million residents near swollen rivers. Tropical Storm Halong disrupted land and air traffic as Japan began its annual "Obon" Buddhist holiday week.
