Typhoon No.10 Japan Meteorological Agency “Biggest Warning: Finish Preparations Today” September 4, 4:57 p.m.
As for Typhoon No. 10, the Japan Meteorological Agency and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism held an unusual joint press conference on March 3 prior to the approach of the typhoon, and said, “There is a risk of record heavy rain, storms, storm surges, and storm surges in areas where typhoons are approaching. We need the highest alert. I would like to ask for early measures to protect my life and the lives of my precious people.”
From the night of the 5th, there is a big impact on a wide range.
A Japan Meteorological Agency official said, “Typhoon No. 10 is likely to develop into a special warning-level force in the future, approach the Okinawa region from the night of the 5th to the morning of the 6th tomorrow, and then continue to maintain its power and continue to approach or land in Amami region and Kyushu from 6th to 7th. It can be severely affected in a wide range of areas.”
“In areas where typhoons are approaching, there is a risk of record heavy rain, storms, high waves, and storm surges, and the largest level of vigilance is needed. I want you to finish your preparations for the typhoon by the end of today. I would like to ask you to take early measures to protect your life and the lives of your precious people.”
Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism “Kagoshima and Miyazaki: There is a risk of flooding even in large rivers”
A person in charge of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism said, “In the future, heavy rains associated with typhoons may cause river flooding and flooding, and storm surges may cause flooding and flooding near coasts and estuarys. In Kagoshima and Miyazaki, there is a growing risk of flooding even in large rivers managed by the government. I want people to pay attention to weather information in other areas as well,” he explained, expressing a sense of crisis, “depending on the amount of rain, it may exceed the capacity of the river maintenance plan, and it is extremely severe.”
Pay attention to the water level of the river even if it is sunny.
In addition, based on future forecasts at nine dams such as Kyushu, we lower the water level of the dam in advance in preparation for heavy rain, and call for careful attention to the water level even if it is sunny.
Evacuate to a safe place before the wind gets stronger.
On that basis, he said, “I would like you to check the hazard map of floods created by municipalities as soon as possible to understand the possibility of flooding, evacuation sites, evacuation routes, etc., and to prepare for evacuation. In areas where typhoons are approaching, if the river increases, it may be impossible to move due to the storm. I want them to take shelter in a safe place before the wind gets stronger, so that they can be safe as soon as possible.”
