[앵커]

Typhoon Nanmadol, heading north, also hit the Japanese archipelago.

Record-breaking downpours and strong winds of up to 720mm are causing injuries.

Only 9.5 million people are advised to evacuate.

A large tree is swayed unsteadily by strong winds, as if it were about to break.

Typhoon Nanmadol, the 14th typhoon with strong winds and heavy rain, made landfall in Japan.

The daily precipitation exceeded 500 mm in eight observation points in the Kyushu region of southwestern Japan, and the 24-hour precipitation in seven places sets a new record for the highest in observation history.

In Miyazaki Prefecture, where it rained the most, the 24-hour precipitation recorded 725.5 mm.

It rained for a month and a half, and it fell in just one day.

Thirty-three rivers were above the flood risk level, seven of which were identified as having a high risk of levees collapsing or overflowing.

The effect of strong winds was also significant.

In Yakushima, Kagoshima Prefecture, the fastest wind speed was observed in excess of 50 m/s.

At the construction site, a crane was toppled by strong winds and the outer wall of the four-story building collapsed.

Rail traffic, including the Shinkansen, was paralyzed, mainly in Kyushu, and a large number of flights were also cancelled.

“I originally planned to go back to Nagoya (from Kumamoto) by plane, but all the flights were cancelled, so I had to take the Shinkansen train back.”

In the process of preparing for a typhoon, the captain of a small pleasure boat is found dead, and the number of casualties also increases.

An evacuation notice was issued to about 9.55 million people due to the issuance of a typhoon warning, and 300,000 homes suffered power cuts.

The Japanese government has raised its vigilance by upgrading the Liaison Office of the Prime Minister’s Office to the Countermeasures Office of the Government Office.

“It is likely that the highest level of vigilance will be required against not only strong winds, high waves and tidal waves, but also landslides, floods and river flooding.”

The Japan Meteorological Agency has issued a special warning for heavy rain and urged people not to delay in avoiding them as unprecedented heavy rain is falling.
