According to the observations of the Japan Meteorological Agency, Typhoon No. 4 is moving north-northwest at a speed of 30 km per hour over the sea 160 km south-southwest of Minamidaito Island at 9:00 am on the 2nd.



The central pressure is 998 hectopascals, the maximum wind speed near the center is 20 meters, the maximum instantaneous wind speed is 30 meters, and strong winds of 15 meters or more are blowing within 440 km to the southeast and 220 km to the northwest of the center.



Currently, the Daito Islands region is in a strong wind region, and at Kitadaito Airport, we observed a maximum instantaneous wind speed of 25.2 meters at 11:07 am.



The typhoon is expected to move northwest as it develops, and will be closest to the main island of Okinawa and the Amami region of Kagoshima prefecture later tonight, and may approach Kyushu from the 4th to the 5th.



In the Amami region of Okinawa, Kagoshima, and Kagoshima prefectures, it rains heavily over three days, and especially in the main island of Okinawa, there is a risk of extremely heavy rain of 50 mm per hour locally.



The amount of rain that falls in the 24 hours until noon on the 3rd is expected to be 200 mm in the main island of Okinawa and 100 mm in Kagoshima and Amami.



The wind is getting stronger, and the maximum instantaneous wind speed expected over the 3rd is 35 meters in the Okinawa main island region and the Amami region in Kagoshima prefecture, and 30 meters in the Daito island region.



The height of the waves over the 3rd is expected to be 6 meters in the Okinawa main island region and the Daito island region, and in the Amami region of Kagoshima prefecture.



The Meteorological Observatory warns against high waves and warns against strong winds, sediment disasters, low land inundation, and river flooding.



After that, the typhoon may move northward in the East China Sea and approach Kyushu from the 4th to the 5th, and the Japan Meteorological Agency is calling attention to future information.
