Typhoon No.10 Storms I have never experienced Before May cause heavy rain September 4, 19:29
Typhoon No. 10, which developed rapidly, is going north over the sea south of Japan. Typhoons may develop further in the future, approaching the Okinawa and Amami regions on the 6th, and then approaching or landing in Kyushu on the 7th.
The Japan Meteorological Agency strongly calls for measures such as moving to a safe place before a typhoon approaches, as there is a risk of storms, high waves, storm surges, and heavy rains that it has never experienced before.
According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, Typhoon No. 10, which is very strong, is going northwest at a rate of 15 kilometers per hour over the sea 460 kilometers southeast of Minami-Daito Island at 6 p.m. on the 4th.
The center pressure is 920 hectopascals, the maximum wind speed near the center is 50 meters, and the maximum instantaneous wind speed is 70 meters.
The central pressure, which indicates the strength of the typhoon, has declined by 45 hectopascals in the 24 hours leading up to 9 a.m. on the 4th, and is rapidly developing.
Due to the warm, moist air flowing around the edge of Typhoon No. 10, atmospheric conditions have become unstable over a wide area, and rain clouds have developed locally in Kanto and Shikoku at this time.
In the hour leading up to 5 p.m., 55.5 mm of very heavy rain was observed in Oku-Nikko, Tochigi Prefecture.
The typhoon will develop further in the future and become a fierce force, and the Japan Meteorological Agency says that the force is comparable to the “Second Muroto Typhoon” in 1961 and is likely to approach Amami, Okinawa on June 6.

The possibility of the announcement of “special warning” such as a storm
Typhoons can approach or land in Kyushu from the Amami region with very strong or violent forces from 6th, Sunday to 7th and Monday.
The forecast is still wide, but at 3 p.m. on the 6th, when the center of the typhoon is believed to be approaching 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 says that in areas where typhoons are approaching, there is a possibility of causing severe damage due to record storms, high waves, and storm surges, and that there is a possibility of announcing a “special warning” for storms, etc. in advance.
