Typhoon Vongfong hits Shikoku, proceeding to main island of Honshu

TOKYO. KAZINFORM A large typhoon made landfall on the western main island of Shikoku Monday afternoon after crossing the southern part of the southwestern main island of Kyushu earlier in the day, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

Typhoon Vongfong is likely to sweep through the Japanese archipelago through the next day, including areas surrounding Osaka before heading out to the Pacific off Japan's northern coast on Tuesday morning, where it is expected to weaken to a depression.

The weather agency warns that the typhoon may bring strong winds and rain to eastern and northern Japan through Tuesday, with an hourly precipitation of 80 millimeters or more forecast mainly for the Pacific-coast side, Kyodo reports.
