Typhoon to hit Japan

| No Comments

Super typhoon Sanba has recently made landfall on Okinawa, a southern island of Japan, according to Judson Jones of CNN.

The typhoon, which could boast winds up to 149 miles an hour, has made landfall in an area where residents had to deal with another super typhoon just last month, the report said.

The storm is moving towards Korea, where it is expected to make landfall Monday, but the affects are being felt as far away as the Philippine capital of Manila, said a NBC News report. The super typhoon is expected to hit parts of southern mainland Japan as well, the report said.

A Huffington Post report said the typhoon is the equivalent of Category 4 Hurricane, and will deposit as much as two feet of rain in certain parts of Okinawa.
