Weather forecasting service of the country asked residents in southernmost prefecture Okinawa to take all safety measures and not to come to the coastal line.
All ferry traffic was halted in this area, fishing vessels are being brought on the coast or fishermen try to bring them to shelter at safe bays. Different air companies are reporting about flights cancelled to remote islands and the city of Naha, an administrative centre of Okinawa.
Neoguri that means racoon in Korean is moving to this island with a speed of 20 kilometres per hour from the southeast. It will reach Okinawa by Tuesday morning.
The situation is complicated by the fact heavy rains that triggered floods and landslides are already falling on Japanese island Kyushu situated to the north of Okinawa. A record precipitation of 370 millimetres was reported in the area of the city of Amakusa over the past day. As many as 87 thousand people have already received recommendations for evacuation on Kyushu. More large-scale natural disasters may be stirred up by these heavy rains alongside the typhoon moving from the south.
