According to the diplomatic mission, in Tokyo on October 12, the possibility of 500-600 mm of rainfall per day is not ruled out. It is noted at the same time that a historical maximum of 371.9 mm of precipitation was recorded during the typhoon Ida (Kanogawa) in September 1958.

“Avoid lowlands, tunnels, refrain from traveling even around the city by public or private transport,” the embassy said on Facebook.

Earlier, Japanese authorities declared the highest level of danger due to heavy rainfall caused by typhoon Hagibis in seven prefectures in the country, including Tokyo.
