Strong Typhoon No. 10 is strengthening its power in the southern seas of Japan. From the 6th to the 7th, there is a risk that very strong or violent forces will approach or land in the Amami region and Kyushu in Kagoshima Prefecture. Even if you do not land, there is a high impact on a wide area, so be prepared to do so before the typhoon approaches.
According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, Typhoon No. 10 is going west-northwest at a rate of 15 kilometers an hour over the southern sea of Japan at 3 p.m.
The center pressure is 965 hectopascals, the maximum wind speed near the center is 40 meters, and the maximum instantaneous wind speed is 55 meters, further strengthening the force.
The typhoon is expected to change its course to the north and approach the Daitojima region of Okinawa Prefecture considerably in the future.
The maximum wind speed is expected to be 18 meters and the maximum instantaneous wind speed is 30 meters in the Okinawa region on April 4.
What is the maximum wind speed expected on the 5th?
40 to 50 meters in the Okinawa region,
From 20 meters to 24 meters in the Amami area,
Maximum instantaneous wind speed
55 to 70 meters in the Okinawa region,
It is expected to reach 25 to 35 meters in the Amami region.
In addition, there is a risk of heavy rain in a wide area.
The amount of rain falling in the 24 hours from the evening of the 5th to the evening of the 6th is
From 200 mm to 300 mm in the Okinawa and Amami regions, and in southern Kyushu,
It is expected to be 100 to 200 mm in northern Kyushu, Shikoku, and Tokai.
Rainfall may increase significantly thereafter.
In addition, typhoons are expected to approach Kyushu from the Amami region with fierce forces and very strong forces from the 6th to the 7th.
The current forecast is still large, but at 3 p.m. on the 6th in the waters near the Amami region, the central pressure is expected to be 915 hectopascals, the maximum wind speed near the center is 55 meters, and the maximum instantaneous wind speed is 80 meters.
The Japan Meteorological Agency may issue a “special warning” for storms in advance, as heavy rain, storms, high waves, and storm surges are likely to have a significant impact over a wide area.
If you take a course from the west, you will be going north without landing in Kyushu, but the Japan Meteorological Agency

“We need to be on the highest alert.”
As for the outlook for Typhoon No. 10, Shuichi Tatahara, director of the Japan Meteorological Agency’s Weather Consultation Center, said, “Typhoon No. 10 is likely to move north while maintaining a very strong or violent force, and to approach Okinawa, Amami, and Kyushu while maintaining a special warning-class force. It may have a greater impact than the typhoons we have experienced so far, and we need to be on maximum alert for heavy rain, storms, high waves, and storm surges in areas close to the expected path.”
In addition, if you pass through the west side of the currently expected course, it is expected not to land in Kyushu, but to go north over the sea west of Kyushu.
As for this, “even if the typhoon does not land and passs through the sea west of Kyushu, the range of the influence of the typhoon may be much wider than the forecast circle, and the situation where the risk level is very high does not change. We don’t think that even if we go through the sea, the impact will be small.”
On top of that, he said, “We have about two days to take measures until the effects of the typhoon, so I would like to ask you to prepare for it today and tomorrow. Outdoor action after the typhoon starts to affect is dangerous, so I want you to consider the necessary preparations before the impact and take action such as evacuation.”
