Typhoon heading for Tokyo

Breaking Storm News


A fierce typhoon is barrelling towards Tokyo, leaving the Japanese capital at risk of floods and landslides.

Typhoon Fitow, packing winds of up to 126km/h, is currently 500km south of the city, over the Pacific Ocean.

But the slow-moving storm is already whipping up towering six-metre high waves around the island of Hachijojima.

Heavy rains have swollen rivers across Japan, and forecasters fear a repeat of the October 2004 typhoon which left dozens of people dead.
