This typhoon has been moving very slowly. First reports said the typhoon would reach the mainland of Japan yesterday, then it was changed to 3am this morning. But when it finally reached the Shikoku, it was 10am.
The typhoon has slowed down tremendously compared to when it was out over the ocean south of Okinawa. It is bringing lots of rain and wind.
Many areas near rivers and valleys are experiencing flooding. So far, there are no reports of mudslides, but the storm is expected to continue hitting the mainland of Japan for the next few days at the rate it is currently moving.
2 people have died so far from this typhoon; one is a surfer.
