Extreme weather warning issued as typhoon approaches Japan

In addition, some 28,500 houses and other buildings in 30 Okinawa municipalities suffered power outages, NHK said. Rain is expected over wide areas of the entire country through Monday.

Rugby World Cup organizers issued an extreme weather warning and closed two fanzones Saturday as Tapah approached, but they said matches are expected to escape unscathed. It had an atmospheric pressure of 970 hectopascals at its center and was packing wind gusts of up to 180 kph.

Winds of up to 162 kph are expected in Okinawa and northern Kyushu through Sunday, while rain of up to 250 mm is expected in Kyushu and up to 180 mm in the Shikoku region, western Japan in the 24-hour period through Sunday noon, according to the weather agency.

Some forecasts of its track show it moving slightly further north, minimising its direct impact on Japan, although it is likely to bring heavy rain and wind to Kyushu over the weekend.

The storm is set to hit the island of Hokkaido, but should arrive too late to affect the two matches being played there this weekend - including England v Tonga on Sunday.

Several typhoons a year make landfall on Japan's four main islands and the World Cup is being held in peak typhoon season.

"No match disruption is anticipated at this stage", the statement added.

"As a precaution for fans, Kumamoto and Fukuoka have also announced the temporary closure of their Fanzones on September 21 and 22", the committee said.
