In the westernmost province of Hokkaido, two people were killed and dozens injured when a storm hit last week, according to Kyodo News.
The storm, named after Hokkaido, has caused severe flooding and mudslides in the region, and the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (NDMA) has warned people to stay away from the areas.
The weather in Hokkaida is not expected to be particularly conducive to a major weather event, so this is a good sign for Hokkeda residents.
However, if there is a major event in Hokkyo, the NDMA said the disaster may result in severe damage to the community.
“We are currently expecting some heavy rain, so the risk of landslides may be higher, so please be very careful,” the NDMa said.
The agency warned people not to camp, stay at home and avoid outdoor activities.
