Alert in Japan for one of the largest typhoons in its history

90 million people were ordered to evacuate their homes in Japan due to the passage of the typhoon Nanmadol, which crossed the city of Kagoshima in the south of the country, leaving 2 dead and almost 90 injured. It is expected that in the next few days it will end up reaching Tokyo, which is already facing almost constant heavy rains and some public transport services such as high-speed trains closed.

Nanmadol it was categorized as a “super typhoon” by the United States Joint Typhoon Warning Center, a term applied to storms that have sustained winds of more than 150 miles per hour, the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane. This is why the Japanese Prime Minister, Fumio Kishida, delayed his flight to New York where he was to give a speech in front of the United Nations for the 77th UN General Assembly that starts tomorrow.
