Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on saturday expressed his solidarity with Japan which is bracing for super typhoon Hagibis, considered one of the most powerful storms in the Pacific this season, as it is expected to make landfall in the country main island of Honshu later in the day.

 

Naveen tweeted, “As Japan braces for #TyphoonHagibis, we empathise & pray for lakhs of people in path of the storm. #Odisha stands in solidarity with @JapanGov as they undertake evacuations & prepare to weather the storm. Every life is precious, which's why we must all come together #PrayForJapan”.

 

The super typhoon Hagibis, considered one of the most powerful storms in the Pacific this season.



 

The storm battered Chiba prefecture where violent gusts have torn roofs off homes and left some residents with injuries, reports public broadcaster NHK. The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) officials have classified typhoon Hagibis as “very strong”.

 

The death toll from the latest storm is unlikely to be anywhere near as high due to Japan’s stringent building safety standards and comprehensive disaster warning systems. Emergency alerts accompanied by loud chimes are being sent directly to tens of millions of smartphones in the affected areas.


Japan’s two largest airlines, ANA and JAL, have cancelled almost all domestic flights scheduled to or from the two Tokyo airports (Haneda and Narita) and some of the connections between Osaka and Chubu.
