[n] - noun, [v] - verb, [adj] - adjective, [exp] - expression
According to a report by CNN, typhoon Kong-rey will be the ninth tropical system of the season to impact Japan this year, as the storm is expected to bring 75 mile per hour winds equivalent to a Category 1 hurricane. This storm comes just a week after Typhoon Trami, which made landfall this past Sunday in Wakayama province. CNN reports that Kong-rey is expected to dump up to 6 inches of rain on portions of southern Japan and South Korea, which could lead to flash flooding and increases the potential for landslides.
