Jelawat loosing power, lots of damage left in Japan

jelawat-3

Tropical Storm Jelawat is located approximately 70 nm west of Yokosuka and 105 nm south of Misawa, Japan and is accelerating northeastward at 39 knots (72 km/h)over the past six hours. The low-level circulation center (LLCC) has made landfall and is quickly tracking across the Kanto Plain towards the Pacific around the northwestern periphery of the subtropical ridge.

Upper level analysis indicates Jelawat remains under strong vertical wind shear and the system has started to transition to an extra-tropical system. Due to the speed of the system, this transition could be complete more quickly than currently forecast. Jelawat will become a cold core low after it exits Honshu into the cold Sea of Japan over the next few hours.

 

 

 

Jelawat lost its super typhoon status on Friday. Jelawat still produced heavy rain and damaging winds on the Ryukyu Islands. At Naha on Okinawa Islands, winds gusted to 219 km/h (136 mph) Friday night as the center passed near the island.

Jelawat  is blamed for at least two deaths and over 100 injuries. Residents of  Nagoya forced mass evacuation due to flooding of the rivers in that city. Over 500 flights have been canceled and a tree fell on Tokyo’s main train line causing delays.
