Strong Typhoon No. 9 is expected to approach the Okinawa region with a very strong force from the 31st to the 1st. Strict vigilance is necessary for high waves accompanied by storms and winds.
According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, Typhoon No. 9 is expected to develop over the sea east of the Philippines in the evening of the 30th, go north at a speed of about 10 kilometers per hour, and approach the Okinawa region with a very strong force from the 31st to the 1st.
In the main island region of Okinawa and Miyakojima region, it becomes a storm after the evening of the 31st, and there is a risk of a violent wind that some houses collapse in one day.
The maximum wind speed per day is expected to reach 50 meters in the Okinawa region, 40 meters in the Miyakojima region, and the maximum instantaneous wind speed from 60 meters to 70 meters.
In addition, the maximum wind speed is expected to be 29 meters per day and the maximum instantaneous wind speed is 45 meters in the Amami region of Kagoshima Prefecture.
Due to the typhoon, the waves are gradually aging, and from the evening of the 31st in the Okinawa region and the late night on the 31st in the Amami region, both are expected to become ferocious with undings on the day.
Due to rain clouds in the main body of the typhoon and the surrounding area, there is a risk of heavy rain of 80 millimeters per hour accompanied by local thunder in the Okinawa region from the night of the 31st to the day.
In addition, due to the overlap between the approach of typhoons and the time of high tides, the tide level is high in the main island region of Okinawa and the Miyakojima region, and there is a risk of inundation near the coast and estuary.
The Japan Meteorological Agency has called for vigilance against high waves, storm surges, landslides and low land inundation accompanied by storms and surges. Be prepared for typhoons before the wind or rain strengthens, and move to a sturdy building as soon as possible.
