Typhoon Nanmadol is rapidly strengthening as it approaches southern Japan

A large and strong typhoon – which rapidly intensified and earned the Meteorological Agency’s highest classification of “severe” – is expected to move into Kyushu this weekend, then curve northeast, bringing dangerous conditions in large areas of Japan.

The agency warned of high waves, storm surges, landslides, flooding and overflowing rivers. He said the wind could be so strong in areas like southern Kyushu that some houses were at risk of collapsing, urging residents to stay in sturdy buildings and stay away from windows. He also warned against so-called linear rainfall areas, which can bring heavy rainfall for long periods in the same areas and lead to disasters.
