Tokyo and Eastern Japan on Alert over Typhoon Dolphin



TOKYO Tokyo prefecture and others in central and eastern Japan were on meteorological alert from Thursday over the advent of Typhoon Dolphin, which will see risks of torrential rainfall, strong waves and gusts of wind.

The 12th typhoon of the season in the Pacific approached the central region of Kanto since midnight Wednesday and, although predicted to make landfall in the capital or its surroundings, moved towards the Pacific during the morning heading northeast, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.

Dolphin was located about 280 kilometers from the coastal prefecture of Chiba at 11:00 am local time (0200 GMT), according to the Japanese meteorological agency, which reduced the intensity of the meteorological phenomenon to the category of tropical storm.

Dolphin is expected to move north in the coming hours of Thursday and Friday and approach the northwestern coast of Japan, prompting a meteorological alert in the prefectures of Tokyo, Chiba, Ibaraki and Fukushima.

Japanese authorities warn of the risk of rainfall of up to 100 millimeters per hour, winds of 80 kilometers per hour and waves of seven meters in height in the eastern shores of Japan.

They also noted the danger of floods and landslides in the affected areas.

The Japan Meteorological Agency expects Dolphin to continue its northward course on Friday, slowing to become an extratropical cyclone.

The Japanese archipelago was hit three weeks ago by Typhoon Haishen, the 10th of the season and whose exceptional strength left a trail of destruction in the southwest of the country that included two fatalities, four missing and a hundred injured.
