Typhoon Nanmadol is now hitting Japan with heavy rain and strong winds

Arab weather - A tropical system has been formed over the waters of the Sea of Japan during the past few days, and it has provided warm water temperatures with temperatures up to 29 degrees Celsius. Its velocity reaches about 177 km/h, amid expectations of catastrophic flooding in Japan due to the tropical cyclone.

According to the weather maps in the Arab Weather Center, the tropical air system will move during the next 24 hours towards the rest of Japan, causing heavy rain and strong winds, but it slowly retreats from a second-degree hurricane to a first-class hurricane, and later continues its way towards the waters of the Atlantic Ocean on Wednesday.

The Japanese authorities have evacuated four million people from their homes due to the danger to their lives, which are now facing the violent typhoon winds and flood rains.


Japan typhoon season is at its peak

Typhoon season in Japan usually extends from July to October, but August and September are known to be the most active time of strong typhoons, and typhoons usually begin in the southwestern part of the Pacific Ocean east of the Philippines, where typhoons make their way through the "cyclone corridor", (which is An oceanic road sends cyclones toward the Asian continent, but once a cyclone settles over the ocean, it often dissipates without damage)

This means that Japan is located along the western edge of the typhoon path, in particular, "Okinawa" is located in the middle of the road and annually experiences an average of seven storms of this type.
