Typhoons in Japan
The meteorological agency said in a televised warning that the system could trigger violent winds, landslides and flooding in southern and south-western parts of the archipelago, as well as high tides, lightning and tornadoes. While the typhoon is not expected to make a direct hit on Tokyo, its path will take it over the cities of Osaka and Kyoto before it heads out to sea, according to the meteorological agency.
The typhoon comes soon after parts of Japan were hit by torrential rains in July that killed more than people.
One resident of Osaka said her house was shaking and the lights were flickering on and off. People in nearby Kobe said on social media that the wind was shaking their apartment buildings and ripping branches off trees. As it made its way north from the southern island of Okinawa, Jebi was already causing widespread disruption to flights and public transport.
More than domestic and international flights were cancelled, along with scores of ferry and train services, the public broadcaster NHK said. The meteorological agency said Jebi was expected to pass over the Sea of Japan by late Tuesday and to have weakened to an extra-tropical cyclone by Wednesday morning. Play Video.
