Overseas Network, Oct. 12 - Typhoon Heibeis No. 19 of this year is expected to make landfall in Japan on Saturday (12), bringing record-breaking rains and strong winds to Tokyo and other regions. Chinas Central Meteorological Observatory announced at 1400 on December 12th that Haibeisi is located about 275 kilometers southwest of Tokyo, Japan, with a maximum wind of 15 degrees, a wind speed of 48 meters per second (about 173 kilometers per hour), and moving east-northward at a speed of about 45 kilometers per hour.
When the supertyphoon Haibeis approached Japan, the sky became purple, which caused great concern. Before the typhoon approached, the local residents took a lot of photos. The sky showed many colors, such as purple, pink and violet.
On the afternoon of December 12, the Japan Meteorological Agency issued the highest-level rainstorm warning to Tokyo and six other counties in central and Eastern Japan (Shizuoka, Kanagawa, Saitama, Qunma, Yamanashi and Nagano) and warned of possible secondary disasters such as floods and landslides. Japanese Meteorological Agency officials warned the public that they must stay in solid buildings and take all necessary precautions to protect their lives.
Typhoon Haibeisi has caused great damage to the transportation system, and relevant operational departments have done a good job in dealing with the landing of Typhoon. From the morning of the 12th, Shinkansen railway and Tokyo city group railway have been suspended in stages. Japans All Nippon Airlines (ANA) and Japan Airlines (JAL) have cancelled almost all domestic flights at Haneda and Narita airports on the 12th.
