Typhoon Trami is currently equal to a Category 3 major hurricane on the Atlantic or East Pacific oceans.

Although it moves slowly towards Japan, Trami will be capable of producing damaging winds, flash flooding, mudslides and widespread travel disruptions across the country.

The powerful typhoon is forecast to hit the Ryuku Island of Japan from Friday night to Saturday. The typhoon will continue to move North East of Japan and will it mainland from Sunday to Monday.

Currently, all locations in Japan are at risk for impacts from Typhoon Trami as the storm rapidly accelerates northward.
