Since yesterday Japan, specifically its capital Tokyo, has been threatened by the arrival of the huge and dangerous typhoon Mindulle. It is a meteorological phenomenon that comes with heavy rains and winds of up to 180 kilometers per hour.
This has caused the authorities of the Japanese country to have to cancel a large number of flights already close schools due to the risk of possible personal and material damage.
This typhoon is the ninth of the year and it is normal for continuous typhoons and cyclones to occur in the Pacific area since it is the favorable season for it. Experts on the subject have classified it as strong, so numerous material damages are expected in the next few hours. Since yesterday, air and rail traffic has been interrupted and thousands of homes have been left without electricity.
The authorities have recommended that the entire population avoid leaving their homes as heavy rains are expected that could cause severe flooding in many areas of the Japanese capital. Typhoon Mindulle is such a magnitude that the red alert has been decreed in towns such as Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama and Chiba.
According to meteorological experts, the important typhoon is expected to move towards the north of the country until it reaches the island of Honshu and Hokkaido. These are areas that have been hit by a lot of typhoons this year although this time, it is likely that the Mindulle can cause much more damage than the previous ones. We will have to wait if in the next few hours he loses some strength or becomes one of the most devastating of the season.
