Tropical storm makes landfall in northern Japan

Must read

TOKYO: A tropical storm hit northern Japan on Wednesday, but there were no immediate reports of damage and Olympic soccer games in the region were expected to go ahead.
Local authorities issued non-mandatory evacuation orders and set up emergency shelters when Tropical Storm Nepartak made landfall in the Miyagi region of northern Japan shortly before 6:00 am (2100 GMT Tuesday).
The storm passes south of the city of Morioka in Iwate prefecture, bringing “strong” but not “violent” winds of 90 kilometers (56 miles) per hour, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.
Miyagi will host Olympic football matches on Wednesday, some of the few Tokyo 2020 events that fans can attend, but organizers said they would not be affected.
Heavy rains prompted some cities in Iwate to issue landslide warnings and several local train services were suspended, but not bullet trains.
The storm is projected to weaken as it travels northwestward and into the Sea of ​​Japan in the early afternoon.
On Tuesday, the weather system brought wind and rain to parts of Japan’s east coast, creating challenging conditions at the Tokyo women’s triathlon.
Organizers rescheduled some rowing and archery events due to concerns about high winds and brought forward the final rounds of surfing competitions to take advantage of the waves.
Typhoon season in Japan runs from May to October and peaks in August and September.
In 2019 Typhoon Hagibis slammed into Japan as the venue for the Rugby World Cup, killing more than 100 people.
