As early as Friday, the Japanese government already raised its maximum precautionary alert to all its citizen of the prefectures in path of the typhoon. Suspension of public transportation and release of water reserves from dams are just two of the measures imposed by the local government to prevent further damage and impact of the expected devastating effect of the super typhoon. The Meteorological Agency urged extreme caution over the potential impacts of the typhoon as it is expected to intensify Sunday, potentially reaching an atmospheric pressure of 915 hectopascals at its center and packing winds of up to 306 kilometers per hour, faster than most Japanese shinkansen "bullet trains".

It is likely that Sunday, Super Typhoon Haishen will approach land in the Okinawa Region bringing strong gust and torrential rain while maintaining its strength as it crosses more water than land. Around Sunday to Monday, the agency stated that the threat will move towards Amami-Oshima Island and approach Kyushu.

Local agencies are already implementing necessary preventive measures such as evacuation of citizens near the coastal areas and giving out hour by hour advisories with the help of Japan's local media.

It is indeed Japan is facing a difficult situation as this kind of natural disaster will strike the country anytime soon while the current coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic is still ongoing.
