• Staff Report


Areas along the Pacific coast should brace for torrential rain Monday due to an unstable atmosphere affected by a weather front, a cold air mass from the north and Typhoon No. 14, which is moving east over the ocean south of Japan, the Meteorological Agency warned Monday morning.

Precipitation may exceed 30 mm per hour in some areas, NHK reported, without naming specific areas that may be affected. The agency is warning that heavy rain may cause landslides and bring floods to lowlands, as well as calling for caution against stormy conditions, including high waves, at sea, it said.
