Winds batter Japan as Typhoon Trami heads towards Tokyo

'Very strong' typhoon Trami churns towards Japan - The Jakarta Post

Scores of flights serving major airports on Japan's main islands had already been canceled.

Trami, the 24th typhoon of the season, swept the southern islands of Okinawa and Kyushu on Sunday morning, with winds gusts of up to 222kmh, according to the agency.

It was then expected to move in a northeasterly direction through eastern and northern Japan on October 1.

Tokyo Metro announced it will suspend operation of some subway trains from 9 p.m. Jebi was considered to be the strongest storm to hit the nation in 25 years and caused over $2 billion in damages.

"The airport is closed".

The Yomiuri ShimbunAn extremely powerful typhoon was expected to bring violent winds and stormy weather to an extensive area stretching from western to northern Japan on Monday.

Some 700 people were evacuated to shelters in Okinawa and electricity was cut to almost 200,000 homes, public broadcaster NHK said.

If the forecast holds, it will be the latest in a series of extreme natural events to strike Japan.

But the higher-valued dollar has also diminished the value of the Turkish lira and the Argentine peso, among others. The world's two largest economic superpowers have already applied tariffs on $50 billion of each other's imports.

Trami tore through the southern island of Okinawa on Saturday, bringing winds strong enough to flip over cars.

Local officials said no one was feared dead as a result of the storm.

Fishermen in Kagoshima bay, where the typhoon is expected to make landfall, were already making preparations, tying down their boats as Trami approached - even as forecasters warned that another typhoon was following in its course.

"We are strongly urging our residents to stay indoors because it is extremely risky to be outside now", Masaaki Tamaki, an official of Kagoshima's disaster management section, told AFP.

Osaka's Kansai International Airport (KIX) preemptively closed its airport until Monday, which has led to hundreds of flight cancellations.

Typhoon Trami sparked travel disruption in the world's third-biggest economy, with bullet train services suspended, more than 1,000 flights cancelled and Tokyo's evening train services scrapped. Nearly all of services on the Tokaido Shinkansen Line are also being suspended throughout September 30, according to Central Japan Railway Co.

Typhoon Jebi caused widespread flooding at least seven deaths in early September.

A strong typhoon hit the Japanese archipelago Sunday, injuring dozens and forcing public transportation operators to shut down their services early.
