On Saturday (3), the super typhoon will be between China and Japan and poses risks to Japan. Alerts were sent to the population of Okinawa for residents to seek shelter.
The high temperatures of the sea surface where the super typhoon will pass offer conditions to trigger an atypical storm surge. Japan’s weather officials have warned that the winds could topple buildings. The super typhoon is expected to continue its trajectory towards the Korean peninsula, being able to skirt Taiwan and the coast of mainland China.
