Typhoon Chan-hom Approaches Japan
Chan-hom formed from a tropical depression has now developed into a strong typhoon with maximum sustained winds of 90 mph. The 14th typhoon in the Western Pacific region this year, Chan-hom is expected to strengthen rapidly today. The storm is forecast to approach Tokyo and its surrounding areas on Saturday.
Severe storm surge is expected along southern and southwestern Japan, as the typhoon is still gathering strength and expanding its wind field. Heavy rains pose flooding threats. Over the weekend, Chan-hom will transition into a powerful extratropical storm while moving rapidly towards the North Pacific.
