WARNING: Superstorm Vongfong reaches Japan on weekend

Superstorm Vongfong was intensified into the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane on the cusp of Category 5 status, as it heads through the Western Pacific Ocean toward Japan. Its maximum sustained winds is at least 155mph and it's heading through Japan, a nation that is still reeling from the aftermath of Typhoon Phanfone over the weekend, this coming Sunday. This is known to be this year's most powerful storm since last year's Superstorm Haiyan which has max winds of 230kph and 315kph gusts before it caused havoc in the Visayas part of the Philippines.

The northern Ryukyu Islands will be the first to feel the wrath of this superstorm as early as Saturday or Saturday night while the worst impacts across mainland Japan are expected from Monday to Tuesday and expect devastating winds and strong rainfall.
