Typhoon Fitow to Affect Russias Far East

According to Russian meteorologists, the Far East of Russia will also face the effects of a powerful typhoon that is now moving toward Tokyo (Japan) at 20 kilometres per hour. On Friday the typhoon Fitow is expected to hit Honshu island in Japan and then to continue moving north.
      Although the typhoon will have become much weaker by the time it reaches the Russian coastal line, on September 7 it is predicted to cause heavy rains and strong winds in the Primorsky Region of Russia.
      Later, going north, the typhoon will turn into an extra-tropical cyclone. Heavy rains are also expected to take place in the Khabarovsk Region of Russia, southern Sakhalin, and in the south of the Kuril Spit.
      The meteorologists also predict that the heavy rains will take place along with strong winds (up to 20 metres per second at the coastal lines) that may cause some difficulties for ports` services functioning and interrupt surface travel in some areas of the Russian Far East.
