Posted by Elena Ugrin on August 25, 2015 in categories Featured articles, Tropical Storms, Typhoons





Typhoon "Goni" made landfall in the Kumamoto prefecture on the Japanese Island of Kyushu on August 25, 2015, after battering the Ryuyku Islands and the northern Philippines. Extreme weather conditions left 70 people injured, at least one missing and more than 600 000 evacuated.
The powerful typhoon made landfall in the southwestern Kumamoto prefecture on August 24 around 21:00 UTC, according to Japan Meteorological Agency. Prior to that, Goni caused severe flooding and landslides across the northern Philippines, leaving behind at least 26 victims.

Heavy rainfall and violent winds brought by the Typhoon "Goni" have wreaked havoc across the affected areas over the Kyushu Island, heavily disrupting rail and traffic services, uprooting trees and causing severe infrastructural damage. Hundreds of flights have been canceled on the local airports, including the international services between Fukuoka, Seoul and Shangai.
