El sistema meteorológico nacional japonés mantiene las alertas debido a que el fenómeno climático ha originado inundaciones graves en daños, pese las previsiones que el país tomó ante la alerta del fenómeno climático, sus daños se incrementaron al tocar tierra.
Inicialmente se pensaba que tocaría primero, afectando la región de Okinawa, sin embargo el impacto del fenómeno natural integrado por ráfagas de viento constante de 155 millas por hora así como ráfagas eventuales que alcanzaron incluso las 190 millas por hora.
Al momento el sistema meterológico mundial se ha sumado a la alerta para brindar auxilio al oriental país por los graves destrozos y la necesidad de apoyo en acciones de salvamento; existen hasta ahorita tres zonas que se encuentran inundadas bajo 500mm de lluvia.
