**Two typhoons that formed in the south of Japan continued to move north on the 30th. Among these, Typhoon No. 18, which is large and extremely strong, is moving west-northwest through the Bashi Strait at a speed of approximately 10 kilometers per hour. Typhoon No. 18 will move slowly after this, and there is a risk that the effects of rain and wind will last for a long time.**

According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, Typhoon No. 18, a large and very strong typhoon, was in the Bashi Strait at 3pm on the 30th and was moving west-northwest at a speed of about 10 km per hour.

The atmospheric pressure at the center is 935 hectopascals, the maximum wind speed near the center is 50 m/s, the maximum instantaneous wind speed is 70 m/s, and it is a storm with wind speeds of 25 m/s or more within a 150 km radius from the center. Also, within a radius of 500 km from the center, strong winds of over 15 m/s/h are blowing.

▼It is expected to reach within a 65km radius around the South China Sea by 3pm on the 1st, 24 hours later. The atmospheric pressure at the center is expected to be 925 hectopascals, the maximum wind speed near the center is expected to be 50 m/s, and the maximum instantaneous wind speed is expected to be 70 m/s. Within a radius of 230 km from the center of the forecast circle, there is a risk of severe winds with wind speeds of 25 m/s or more.

▼It is expected to reach a radius of 155 km centered on the South China Sea by 3:00 pm on the 2nd, 48 hours later. The atmospheric pressure at the center is expected to be 935 hectopascals, the maximum wind speed near the center is expected to be 50 m/s, and the maximum instantaneous wind speed is expected to be 70 m/s. Within a radius of 320 km from the center of the forecast circle, there is a risk of severe winds with wind speeds of 25 m/s or more.

▼By 3pm on the 3rd, 72 hours later, it is expected to reach a 260km radius centered on the south of Okinawa. The atmospheric pressure at the center is expected to be 980 hectopascals, the maximum wind speed near the center is expected to be 30 m/s, and the maximum instantaneous wind speed is expected to be 40 m/s. Within a radius of 390 km from the center of the forecast circle, there is a risk of severe winds with wind speeds of 25 m/s or more. The probability that the center of the typhoon will fall within the forecast circle is 70%.
