A Deadly Typhoon has hit the coastal areas of Japan and a safety warning has been issued. Due to its speed, it may lead to a Tsunami and may destroy houses and roads which is measured as one of the biggest in recorded history in recent years.
Japan is prone to tsunamis, Heavy typhoons, earthquak, and heavy rain and had countless damages in the past years too.
Typhoon Nanmadol, one of the biggest sea storms to hit Japan so far, has hit the southern island of Kyushu. The storm is moving at a speed of 180 kilometers per hour, according to the BBC.
Heavy rain is expected in some areas today due to the storm. At least 4 million people have been asked to leave their homes and move to safer places as the storm can cause major floods and landslides.
High-speed trains, ferries, and hundreds of flights have been canceled, according to the BBC. Japan’s climate agency has said that heavy rains and storms will occur in coastal areas due to Nanma-dola. According to the climate agency, there is a risk that houses may be destroyed when the wind speed is very strong.
An official from Japan’s climate agency said the typhoon could be worse than Typhoon JB in 2018 and Typhoon Hagibis in 2019. Japan is well prepared to deal with typhoons. But climate change is making such disasters bigger and more destructive, scientists have said.
May almighty save the Japanese people from such disasters and stay safe everyone.
