VLADIVOSTOK, September 1 (Itar-Tass) — Powerful Typhoon Talas may strike three regions of Russia's Far East. The east of the Khabarovsk and the Primorsky Territories and the entire Sakhalin Region may be hit by heavy rains, thunderstorms and strong winds, the press service of the Russian Emergencies Ministry's Far Eastern regional centre told Itar-Tass on Thursday. EMERCOM services in the regions are placed on alert. Heads of municipalities, regional administrations and police are informed about the possibility of emergencies.
The tropical storm was slowly moving northwest to Japan's southern islands on Thursday, the press service of the Primorsky meteorological centre said. The wind near the typhoon centre reaches 33 m/sec. The range of the strong wind is about 600 km. The height of waves is seven-eight metres.
Typhoon Talas with heavy rains and a windstorm will strike Japan's Island Shikoku on Friday night. Then, it will move faster across Honshu's southern regions on Saturday night. The storm will reach the east of the Sea of Japan on September 4. It will move near Primorye's eastern coast and then along the Khabarovsk Territory's coast.
Its way to Primorye is blocked by a tropospheric whirl, but the way to the Tatar Strait is open, the head of the regional meteorological centre, Boris Kubai, said. Japan and Sakhalin will receive the main strike. The Tatar Strait is rather narrow, and so, Primorye's eastern coast most likely will be also hit by windstorms and heavy rains.
