Storm TALAS

Body

The newly formed Tropical Storm TALAS is moving northwards of the Philippine Sea, towards the south-eastern coast of Honshu Island (central Japan). On 23 September at 0.00 UTC, its centre was located about 300 km south of Higashimuro District (Wakayama Prefecture, south-eastern Honshu), with maximum sustained winds of 65 km/h. 

On 23 September, TALAS is forecast to move north and pass close to Wakayama Prefecture, as a Tropical Storm. After that, it is expected to downgrade to a Tropical Depression, as it first makes landfall in the early morning of 24 September in an area close to Hamamatsu City (Shizuoka Prefecture, central-eastern Honshu), and then passes close to Tokyo Metropolitan Area in the afternoon of 24 September.

Red alerts for heavy rainfall and landslide risk have been issued for some coastal Prefectures in south-eastern Honshu, including Wakayama Prefecture. On 23-24 September, light to locally moderate rainfall is forecast over most of eastern Honshu Island.
