Typhoon No. 19 continues to be dangerous. Never approach a dangerous place on October 13 at 18:26.
In Tohoku and Kanto Koshinetsu, where river storms and earth and sand disasters occurred in various places due to the impact of Typhoon No. 19, the river level is still very high and the ground is still loose, causing new disasters. The danger is high. Keep strict vigilance and stay away from dangerous places such as flooded rivers and slopes.
According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, Typhoon No. 19 landed on the Izu Peninsula in Shizuoka Prefecture on the 12th night, passed through eastern Japan and northern Japan, and changed to a temperate cyclone over Japan's eastern sea at noon on the 13th.
Due to the impact of this typhoon, in Tohoku and Kanto Koshinetsu, 30 to 40% of the annual rainfall in each region is a record heavy rain that falls in just one day or two days. River flooding continued in various places such as the Abukuma River and the Koshibe River in Saitama Prefecture.
Rivers in each region are still in high water levels, and in Miyagi, Fukushima, Niigata, Ibaraki, Tochigi, Saitama, and Kanagawa prefectures, the risk of flooding is very high during this time. Some rivers have exceeded the “flooding dangerous water level”.
In Iwate and Saitama prefectures, there are areas where landslide disaster alert information has been announced, the ground has become loose, and the risk of landslide disasters continues to be extremely high.
In Tohoku and Kanto Koshinetsu, where record heavy rains have occurred, the risk of new disasters is still high, and the Japan Meteorological Agency calls for continued caution against river flooding and landslides.
Keep away from dangerous places such as rivers and slopes with increased water. Also, try to refrain from taking action as much as possible at night in areas where flooding is continuing without flooding the river.
On the other hand, temperate cyclones that have changed from typhoons are gradually moving away from Japan, but in northern Japan, the wind continues to be strong mainly in the sea for a few hours. Is expected to continue from 6 to 7 meters. For a while, you should be careful about strong winds and high waves.
