JAPAN is bracing for the hit of Typhoon Shanshan as another storm – Typhoon Yagi – builds in its wake.

Wed, Aug 8, 2018

Flooding, destructive winds and rough seas are expected for Tokyo and Honshu as Shanshan approaches.

The storm remains a typhoon, with the equivalent strength of a Category 1 hurricane in the Atlantic and East Pacific basins.

On Wednesday, the storm was approaching the eastern coastline of Honshu, and will continue to impact Japan until late in the week.

Rough surf and battering rain have been reported in the region since Tuesday.

Typhoon Shanshan is expected to continue north over the next 24 hours or so, bringing the cyclone close inland.

A brief landfall is possible, but the centre of the storm may stay offshore.

Regardless of whether it makes landfall, the track of the typhoon will bring significant impact to the Japan mainland.

There is a risk of flooding across eastern and northern Honshu, including the Greater Tokyo Area.
