Japan is preparing for the arrival of strong Typhoon Jebi, a Category 2 or 1 typhoon when making landfall on Tuesday, September 4, in the vicinity of Osaka, in western Japan. Up to 30 cm (11 in) of rain in and powerful winds of up to 200 km/h (125 mph) are expected over the next 24 hours.

Individuals present in the abovementioned regions are advised to monitor local weather reports, anticipate transportation and power disruptions, obey instructions issued by the local authorities, and avoid flood-prone areas until the situation stabilizes.
