Tropical cyclone Melor headed for Japan

Oct. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Typhoon Melor headed toward southern Japan after weakening overnight to a Category 2 storm with winds of 157 kilometers (100 miles) per hour and is forecast to make landfall tomorrow southwest of Tokyo.

Melor was centered 364 kilometers south of the city of Kagoshima on Kyushu at 10 a.m. Tokyo time today and was moving north-northeast at 30 kph, the Japan Meteorological Agency said on its Web site. It’s forecast to approach the coast of Shikoku or adjacent areas on Honshu after 3 a.m. tomorrow.

The weather office issued its second-highest level warnings for floods, gales, high waves and a storm surge for southern Shikoku and Kyushu and islands to the southwest. Alerts were issued for high winds, heavy rain and thunderstorms for areas from the southwest to Tokyo and regions north of the capital.

TOKYO —
A typhoon made landfall in Japan for the first time in two years early Thursday, leaving one person dead and 36 injured and affecting transportation.

After hitting near Aichi Prefecture’s Chita Peninsula shortly after 5 a.m., Typhoon Melor, the season’s 18th, traveled northeast at a speed of 50 kilometers per hour, with a maximum wind velocity of 162 kph around its center, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.

In Minabe, Wakayama Prefecture, Hiroshi Kitahara, 54, died after hitting a tree felled by the typhoon on his bike while delivering newspapers, while 36 people in 13 prefectures were injured as of 10 a.m., according to the tally by Kyodo News.

A total of 18 Tokaido Shinkansen bullet-train services have been cancelled so far, and more than 20 bullet-train services for the Tohoku, Joetsu, Yamagata and Akita lines have been cancelled or delayed, according to the operators.

In the Tokyo metropolitan area, major railway routes, including the Yamanote, Chuo, Keihin-Tohoku and Saikyo lines, as well as the private Odakyu line, were suspended, affecting morning commuters.

Several international flights to and from Narita, Chubu and Kansai airports and more than 320 domestic flights were cancelled, and parts of expressways were closed in Shizuoka, Aichi and Mie prefectures.
