Published on : Friday, August 4, 2017

1111The south western part of Japan and its including areas are devastated by the torrential rainfall last month, and are now embracing more heavy rainfall as “Typhoon Noru” churns closer to the main island of Japan.

 

 

The Amami island chain of Japan is located just south of the southwest main island of Kyushu and some 1350km from Tokyo, will be hit by strong winds and heavy rain, with as much as 800mm possible in the next 48 hours.

 

 

“Typhoon Noru” is a Korean word for a type of deer. It is then likely to turn north and drench Kyushu. In the last month, heavy rainfall was hit and flooding killed 36 and left four missing.

 

 

The spoke person of Meteorology Department of Japan said that this is an extremely slow-moving storm, which means there is a higher danger of floods due to extended heavy rains in one area.

 

 

“Noru”, is at one point a Category 5 typhoon. It is unusually long-lived storm, first formed two weeks ago and wandered in a circle around the northern Pacific before heading northwest and aiming for Japan, weakening as it approached.

 

 

The direction of the “Typhoon Noru” can be changed. It could take straight across Kyushu and then along with the mail island Honshu. But now, it is hard to pen down the changes in the movements.
