Typhoon No.10 Japan Meteorological Agency “The risk of flooding is increasing even in large rivers” September 5, 4:11 p.m.
As for Typhoon No. 10, the Japan Meteorological Agency and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism held a joint press conference and said, “In areas where typhoons approach, there is a risk of record heavy rain, storms, high waves, and storm surges, and in Kyushu, rainfall exceeding maintenance levels is predicted even in large rivers managed by the government. There is an increased risk of flooding, so I want you to prepare for evacuation.”
Kyushu approach from 6th afternoon to 7th
At the beginning of the interview, a Japan Meteorological Agency official explained that “Typhoon No. 10 may develop into a special warning-class force in the future, approach the Okinawa region in the morning of June 6, the Amami region in the afternoon of the 6th, and then approach or land in Kyushu from the afternoon of the 6th to the 7th while maintaining the force.”
Evacuate early before it gets dark.
“In areas where typhoons are approaching, there is a risk of record heavy rain, storms, high waves, and storm surges. We need the highest alert. In order to protect my life and the lives of my precious people, I would like to ask for early evacuation in accordance with the evacuation advisory of the municipality before the wind and rain strengthen or it gets dark at night.”
Record storm surges, vigilance.
As for the storm surge, “There is a case that it becomes a record storm surge in the region where the typhoon approaches, and if there is a high wave even if the tide level does not cross the embankment, it may be flooded beyond the embankment. I want you to be the biggest warning even if it is flooded by the waves that overlap with the storm surge.”
Large rivers are also at increased risk of flooding
A person in charge of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism explained that “even large rivers managed by the government are expected to have rainfall on a scale that exceeds the current level of maintenance, increasing the risk of flooding.”
