Tropical Cyclone KHANUN is moving northwest over the East China Sea. On 3 August at 0.00UTC, its centre was located 200 km off the western coast of southern Japan, with maximum sustained winds of 167 km/h.

Following the passage of KHANUN south of Okinawa Island on 2 August, the Fire and Disaster Management Agency reports 41 injured people in Okinawa and Kagoshima Prefectures. 198,000 people are still under evacuation orders in Okinawa prefecture. Power disruptions continue to affect 200,000 homes, and only emergency cases are being treated at hospitals that have lost power.

KHANUN is forecast to change its direction turning north-east on 4 August. It could then cross the Tokunoshima and the Amami Islands on 6-7 August with maximum sustained winds of 120 km/h. There is still uncertainty about the trajectory and intensity projections.

Heavy rain is expected to continue until 6 August in Okinawa and Amami.

The Taiwan Central Weather Bureau has issued yellow heavy rain and high wind advisories.
