Powerful typhoon Guchol could land by Wednesday
A powerful typhoon was moving toward the archipelago Monday with sustained strength and could make landfall by Wednesday, the Meteorological Agency said.
The agency warned of thunderstorms, strong winds and high waves in southwestern and western Japan as Typhoon Guchol, the fourth of the year, was around 450 km south of Naha, Okinawa, at 9 a.m. Monday and moving northward at about 25 kph.
The typhoon was expected to approach Okinawa and threaten Shikoku Tuesday night. It could land in areas ranging from western to eastern Japan by Wednesday, the agency said.
With an atmospheric pressure of 950 hectopascals at its core, the typhoon was packing winds of up to around 160 kph near its center and 90 kph or more in areas within a 150-km radius, likely bringing strong winds to southwestern, western and central Japan on Tuesday.

Typhoon makes landfall on Japan's main island
Typhoon Guchol has made landfall in western Japan. Forecasters say the storm is bringing torrential rains to many coastal areas.
It is the first typhoon in 8 years to make a direct strike on Japan's main island of Honshu during the month of June.
Japan's Meteorological Agency say Typhoon Guchol will maintain strength as it travels northeast across the country.
In some areas in western and eastern Japan local governments have issued evacuation advisories affecting thousands of people.
The storm has disrupted transportation networks across the country. Airlines have so far cancelled more than 430 domestic flights. 42 international flights have also been grounded.

The typhoon is still over land and should reach Miyako by 3 this afternoon.

..A powerful typhoon bringing heavy rain and strong winds cut across Japan's main island of Honshu Tuesday, the weather agency said, injuring some 20 people and causing major traffic delays.

More than 150,000 people in central, eastern and northeastern Japan were issued with evacuation orders, Kyodo News said, with warnings of dangerous landslides from the heavy rain.
"It is dangerous to be outside in such weather so we advise people to go home and avoid going out until things have calmed down, which is forecast on Wednesday," the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

The typhoon -- the first tropical storm to make a landfall on Japan this year, and the first since 2004 to do so as early as June -- reached the south of Honshu by late afternoon, the agency said.
It was moving northeast, crossing the north of Tokyo where winds of over 125 kilometres (78 miles) per hour were recorded.
Kyodo News reported 24 people had been injured in ten different prefectures.
Airlines have cancelled 452 domestic and international flights so far, affecting 35,000 passengers, while travel on regional and high-speed trains has been hit with delays and cancellations, and some roads have also been closed.
The typhoon, named Guchol -- meaning "turmeric" in a Micronesian language, -- was projected to go out into the Pacific again Wednesday morning.

A fifth typhoon, named Talim, is following a different path in the South China Sea but is also expected to reach the Japanese archipelago on Friday.

Typhoon hits mainland Japan

A strong typhoon has reached mainland Japan, bringing heavy rain to wide areas. Coastal areas of northeastern Japan are bracing for high waves.
The Meteorological Agency says Typhoon Guchol is bringing heavy rain and strong winds to wide areas of Japan's main island Honshu.
The agency reported a low of 965 hectopascals, and says the typhoon is packing winds of up to 180 kilometers per hour. The storm is now moving northeast at 65 kilometers per hour in central Japan.
The agency says some areas will get as much as 40 centimeters of rain by noon on Wednesday.
In western Japan, municipalities have issued evacuation instructions or advisories to 96,000 households due to possible landslides.
The northeastern city of Ishinomaki issued an evacuation advisory for 13,000 households for fear of high waves. The city's coastal area sank due to last year's devastating earthquake, making it more vulnerable to high waves.
The typhoon has disrupted transportation networks across the country. Airlines have cancelled more than 430 domestic and about 40 international flights.
