Super Typhoon Hagibis To Make Landfall In Chiba

The path of Hagibis is clearly heading up Tokyo Bay, and directly over Chiba Prefecture as of 0830 JST today, October 9, 2019. It looks like Saturday through Sunday will be a slow passing over Chiba until it heads into the North Pacific.

Our concern is for everyone in its path, with winds ashore in the 100 knots range (115 miles per hour) in Tateyama but perhaps dropping to 80 knots (92 miles per hour) in the Tokyo area.

Here in Bellingham, we are all hoping the typhoon will take a different course out to sea, or if not, we hope the impact on Tateyama will be manageable.
