Typhoon Trami to threaten lives and property in Japan

Typhoon Trami, rated category 2 by Tropical Storm Risk, with category 5 the highest, is heading toward Japan's northeast. This powerful typhoon is now equal to a Category 3 major hurricane in the Atlantic or East Pacific Ocean.

Trami has maximum gusts of 216 kilometres per hour and is forecasted to hit the mainland early Sunday and cause extreme weather across the country into Monday. For those living in coastal communities and in flood-prone areas should pay attention to local authorities and heed evacuation orders.

Trami is the latest in a string of extreme natural events in Japan, which has suffered typhoons, flooding, earthquakes and heatwaves in recent months, claiming scores of lives and causing extensive damage.

Streets in the Okinawa prefectural capital of Naha were deserted Sept 29 as winds and rain from Typhoon No. 24 battered the island.

Jebi, the most powerful storm to hit Japan in 25 years, brought some of the highest tides since a 1961 typhoon and flooded Kansai airport near Osaka, taking it out of service for days.

The storm destroyed power lines on the southern islands of Okinawa on Saturday.

Typhoon Trami is lashing the south of Japan, causing travel chaos, power outages and injuries.

The JMA has underscored the need to be prepared for disruption of transportation services, power blackouts, and agricultural damage due to the strong winds, heavy rain and high waves.

More flight cancellations were planned for Sunday.

Bullet trains and other train lines were shutting down while the storm passed. The number of train operated on the Hiroshima-Hakata section on the bullet train line will be reduced on September 30.

West Japan Railway says that from Sunday morning it will start suspending local train services in the Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe districts.

East Japan Railway stopped all train services in and around Tokyo at 8pm, shortly before the typhoon was to draw near the Japanese capital. Legoland Japan in Nagoya and Universal Studios Japan in Osaka are closed on September 30.
