Typhoon Usagi Downgraded to Tropical Storm After Lashing Kyushu.
Typhoon Usagi has been downgraded to a tropical storm after making landfall in Kyushu, just south of the town of Nobeoka. The storm brought strong winds and heavy rain to large swathes of southern Japan but is now weakening as it heads northwest over the sea of Japan.
JMA estimates current winds are 40kts forecast the storm to threaten the northern island of Hokkaido later tomorrow.
No deaths have been reported yet but 18 people were injured during the storm according to the BBC. A large storm surge affected Nabeoka beach front however damage in the town of of 35,000 is light and today business continues as usual.
I have added a video I made of the storm as it passed over Nobeoka.
