Typhoon Kirogi Barely Misses the Southern Tip of Japan


October 19, 2005 (HDW) Fukuoka, Japan Ė Typhoon Kirogi continued on its north-east path and it barely missed southern Japan. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center continues to track this stormís progress, and many people hope that it will continue on its north-eastern path and not strike the south of Japan.


Typhoon Kirogi was a small but well-organized and powerful storm system on October 12, 2005 when it was thought that it might strike Japan. The above picture of Kirogi was taken on 18 October as it just barely missed the southern tip of Japan. At this time, Typhoon Kirogi had sustained winds of 200 kilometers per hour (120 miles per hour) near the stormís center.
