El tifón Lan suspende vuelos

By Duncan Mil

August 16, 2023 - Japón canceló cerca de 900 vuelos y ordenó el traslado de 240.000personas a sitios seguros mientras el tifón Lan avanzó con lentitud
a través de la isla Honshu, dejando sin electricidad a miles de hogares.

Typhoon Lan made landfall early on Tuesday, some 400km (250 miles) southwest of Tokyo, bringing heavy rain and powerful winds and forcing authorities to issue flood and landslide alerts.

The typhoon -- which followed closely on the heels of Typhoon Khanun during Japan’s peak Obon holiday season -- Typhoon Lan had sustained winds of 150km/h (93mph) and moved northwest across the main island of Honshu.

According to Japan’s weather agency, it reached the Sea of Japan early Wednesday and continues north along the sea.
