Typhoon Neoguri: Super typhoon moving towards Japan

A super typhoon named Neoguri was advancing north for Japan on July 7, 2014, set to lash the southern Okinawa archipelagoes with heavy rain and powerful winds before making landfall on Kyushu, Japan’s westernmost main island. The typhoon was already heading at more than 250 km an hour (150 mph) and may become more powerful as it advances north. But it was not expected to be as intense as Typhoon Haiyan, which killed thousands in the Philippines in 2013. Typhoon Neoguri, is known as “Florita” in Philippines. It is the 8th named storm and the second typhoon of the yearly typhoon season and is a large and powerful tropical cyclone affecting Okinawa, Japan.
