Up to 1,000 mm of rain have been forecasted for the region around Nagoya, Tokyo is expecting 750 l/m² of rain. Peak wind speeds of 250 km/h and maximum wave heights of 13 metres prove just how brutal Typhoon Hagibis is.

Thousands of flights, train connections, and numerous events have already been canceled. A RED level warning has been issued at the southeastern coastline.

The last typhoon of this scale, Typhoon Kanogawa, led to more than 1,200 fatalities in 1958.
