September 07, 2023 at 18:28
Impending Arrival of Typhoon No. 13 Raises Concerns for Tokai and Kanto Regions
Typhoon No. 13 is expected to approach the Tokai and Kanto regions on the afternoon of the 8th, with a possible risk of landfall. Additionally, the Izu Islands may experience a “linear rain belt” in the morning of the 8th, which could lead to sudden heavy rainfall and potential disaster. Tomorrow, the 8th, Tokai and Kanto-Kshin regions will be hit with stormy weather, while Tohoku will gradually experience worsening conditions in the afternoon.
Risk of “Linear Rain Belt” in Izu Islands Tonight and Tomorrow Morning
Typhoon No. 13 is currently approaching eastern Japan, with a close proximity to Tokai and Kanto anticipated by the afternoon of the 8th. Landfall is possible, and subsequent stormy conditions may persist with reduced speed. On the 7th, a front extended from western to eastern Japan’s Pacific coast, resulting in unstable atmospheric conditions due to the influx of warm, moist air from Typhoon No. 13. Ishigaki City in Okinawa Prefecture already witnessed heavy rainfall of 42.0 mm in just one hour until 3:30 pm. Rain clouds have enveloped the Pacific coast from Tokai to Kanto, leading to intermittent rainfall in the Izu Islands, Boso Peninsula in Chiba Prefecture, and Izu Peninsula in Shizuoka Prefecture. The Izu Islands are particularly at risk of a “linear rain belt” occurring from tonight until tomorrow morning, potentially causing a sudden increase in heavy rainfall disaster. Stay prepared for power outages and take shelter in a safe location during the night. Be extremely vigilant against landslides, floods, and river inundations.
Anticipated Heavy Rainfall in Tokai, Kanto Koshin, and Tohoku on the 8th
Tomorrow, on the 8th, Tokai, Kanto Koshin, and Tohoku regions are expected to face heavy rainfall accompanied by thunderstorms. The Tokai region will experience heavy storms from tomorrow evening, Kanto-Koshin until tomorrow evening, and Tohoku starting from the afternoon of the 8th until the following day. Such rainfall can be described as a downpour, rendering umbrellas useless. Visibility decreases as the surrounding areas become drenched, making driving extremely dangerous. Therefore, it is advised to avoid unnecessary travel as much as possible.
Expected rainfall within 24 hours until 6:00 pm:
Tokai Region: 300mm
Kanto Region Koshin, Izu Islands: 250mm
Expected heaviest rainfall within 24 hours until 6:00 pm on the 9th:
Tohoku Region: 100-150mm
Kanto Region, Koshin: 50-100mm
If a “linear rain belt” occurs, localized heavy rainfall may be experienced. Remain cautious of potential landslides, floods, rising rivers, and flash floods. Moreover, be mindful of advanced cumulonimbus clouds, which may bring lightning strikes and gusts of wind. Take immediate safety precautions by seeking shelter indoors.
Anticipated Wind and Waves
As the typhoon draws near and makes landfall, coastal areas will face strong winds. The Izu Peninsula should be on high alert for storms starting tonight, with even stronger winds expected tomorrow, the 8th. Strong winds are defined as those requiring you to hold on to something and making driving at normal speed difficult. These winds can cause roof tiles and signboards to fall or be scattered. Engaging in outdoor activities is hazardous due to flying objects that may cause injury. Objects susceptible to being blown away, such as flower pots, should be brought indoors tonight.
Expected wind and wave conditions:
- Eastern Japan on the 8th: Very strong winds mainly offshore, accompanied by swell
- Maximum wind speed on the 7th: Izu Islands – 18 meters (30 meters sudden wind gusts)
- Maximum wind speed on the 8th: Kanto Koshin region, Izu Islands, Tokai region – 20 meters (30 meters sudden wind gusts)
- Expected wave height on the 7th: Izu Islands – 5 meters
- Expected wave height on the 8th: Izu Islands and Tokai region – 5 meters, Kanto region – 4 meters
Stay cautious of high waves, strong winds, and swells, and keep a safe distance from the coast.
Potential Disruption to Public Transportation
Transportation services may experience disruptions from the early hours of tomorrow, the 8th, due to the approaching typhoon. JR East has announced the suspension of some routes starting from the first train tomorrow until the evening, in preparation for the arrival and landfall of Typhoon No. 13. It is strongly advised to limit outdoor activities during stormy periods and stay updated with the latest information. Typhoons bring heavy rain and storms, which can linger for an extended period if the typhoon’s movement is slow. Even if you are far from the typhoon’s center, atmospheric instability can result in hurricane-like gusts. Strong winds and gusts can propel various objects, posing risks even indoors. When a typhoon is approaching, it is recommended to stay away from windows, seek shelter in a windowless room closer to the center of your house, and securely close windows, curtains, and shutters. Avoid any outdoor work once the wind intensifies due to the risk of objects toppling over.
