Japan on Alert for Strengthening Typhoon Phanfone
Residents of Japan are facing another tropical threat from strengthening Typhoon Phanfone.
The AccuWeather.com Typhoon Center anticipates Phanfone to maintain its northwest track through this weekend before curving to the northeast.
Such a track could cause Phanfone to barrel through Japan's Ryukyu Islands this weekend with mainland Japan as its eventual target early next week.
Phanfone may begin its curve to the northeast prior to reaching the Ryukyu Islands and even bypass mainland Japan to the south. However, concern is mounting for the previously stated scenario to unfold and put Japanese lives and property in harm's way.
As Phanfone heads toward the Ryukyu Islands, it will remain in an environment conducive for strengthening and become a powerful typhoon.
