Click On Image For Full JTWC Graphic

According to the US Navy’s Joint Typhoon Warning center (and the NOAA weather supercomputer) typhoon Halong, a category four typhoon (one level below the top level) is headed directly for the Japanese mainland.

The typhoon is expected to landfall in three days and to run directly down the length of the Japanese mainland. It may cause widespread flooding in many parts of the country which have just experienced extensive flooding and damage as a result of a direct hit from typhoon Chataan just last week.
