In Japan, people are on the lookout for two strong typhoons that could bring heavy rains and strong winds across wide areas of the country.
The Meteorological Agency today said that Typhoon Soulik was located 110 kilometers east of the Amami Islands in Kagoshima Prefecture.
Officials forecast the typhoon will head northwest and come close to southern Kyushu and the Amami Islands from tonight to tomorrow morning while maintaining its strength. The Amami area has already been hit by strong winds and almost 8,000 homes are without power.
People are also tracking Typhoon Cimaron. It’s moving across the Pacific Ocean and may approach Japan’s main islands in the latter half of the week.
