Haishen triggered deadly landslides, flooding and caused widespread power outages when it hit Japan.
Haishen, which means “god of the ocean” in Chinese, developed far south of Japan on September 1. The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) issued warnings well ahead of its approach as it was forecast to hit Japan with unusual strength. It rapidly intensified when the central pressure dropped from 970hPa to 925hPa within 24 hours on September 3. The lower the pressure, the stronger the storm. Measurements the following day had it at 920hPa, making it the strongest tropical system on earth this year.
Haishen plowed through the southwestern islands of Japan with full force on September 6. It then passed west of Kyushu island while gradually weakening. The Goto Islands in Nagasaki experienced wind gusts of 214kph, the strongest on record for the area. Miyazaki Prefecture received 522.5mm in 24 hours, more than the average rainfall for the entire month of July./.
