Typhoon Lan Eyes Japan

Posted by on Saturday, October 21, 2017

There is growing concern that Japan will take a hit from typhoon Lan.

As of Friday evening Lan was located 720 kilometres south-southeast of Kadena Air Base, Okinawa.

Wind were are 175 km/h.

Typhoon Lan with heavy rains and destructive winds is expected to hit southern Japan on Sunday when the nation holds a national election, forcing officials in Okinawa to stage voting a day early on some remote islands.

If it stays on track, Lan will approach Tokyo Bay about 3 a.m. local time Monday.
