“This is not a typhoon, although of course there is little pleasant in it.

This is a tropical depression.

It differs in its characteristics.

First of all, the wind speed, and secondly, the precipitation speed.

Up to 150 mm of precipitation can bring in a few days.

This is, as it were, the maximum you can count on.

Anyway, it is also a wind up to 25 m / s, ”explained Shuvalov.

He added that Nepartak has moved northwest and is heading directly towards Tokyo, which could cause "intense rain and wind" that could affect the outdoor competition. 

Earlier, the media reported about the approach of typhoon "Nepartacus" to Tokyo.

The Olympics, postponed from 2020 to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, will be held from July 23 to August 8.
