Due to the influence of Typhoon No. 2 ‘Mawar’, which hits the American territory of Guam and moves north, heavy rain is falling in the Pacific coastal area, including Aichi Prefecture in Japan.
As Typhoon Mawar passed the southern sea of Kyushu, southwestern Japan this afternoon, warm and humid air was introduced, and heavy rain fell in Aichi Prefecture, Shizuoka Prefecture, and Mie Prefecture, where Nagoya City is located.
In the city of Gamagori, Aichi Prefecture, heavy rain of 222.5 mm, the most ever seen, fell for 24 hours until 3 pm today.
Iwata City, Shizuoka Prefecture, said it was concerned that the river flowing through the city would flood due to heavy rains, and issued the highest level of alert, the 5th level “Emergency Safety Assurance,” and ordered 1,091 of people from 411 homes in the city to move to a safe place.
At approximately 5:00 pm, the Tokaido Shinkansen, a high-speed train connecting Tokyo and Osaka, was suspended for all up and down routes.
As the typhoon approaches Tokyo, it is expected to rain up to 250 mm in Kanto Koshin, Tokai and Shikoku, including Tokyo, and 200 mm in Kinki, where Osaka is located, in the 24 hours until noon tomorrow .
