All you have to know about the hurricane lane
Is a tropical cyclone, the 21st hurricane of the 2017 Pacific hurricane season? It originated in the eastern Philippines on October 16. And headed towards Japan by force of 2 according to hurricane standards Simpson-Simpson scale.
Some municipalities have advised locals to evacuate due to increased risks of floods and mudslides. Toyota Motor decided to suspend operations at its manufacturing lines in Toyota, central Aichi Prefecture, as well as its branches in the Kyushu and Tohoku regions until the end of the hurricane. Some high-speed train connections were canceled, airlines canceled more than 250 flights and ferry services linking remote islands to nearby cities were canceled.
The Meteorological Agency of Japan reported that the air pressure in the middle of the hurricane lane is 925 hectopascal, accompanied by winds of 198 kilometers per hour, causing heavy rainfall in the western region in particular, and estimated at more than 800 millimeters for 48 hours until Sunday in the province Wakayama and 700 millimeters in Mei County.
*A number of local towns and cities issued an order to evacuate some areas and the counting of the votes of the House elections that took place in some areas was suspended due to the inability to reach polling stations against the background of the hurricane lane.
*The hurricane lane hit the country during the House elections in October 1979, and fell more than 100 millimeters of rain in Tokyo and Yokohama in one day, leading to a 53 percent drop in turnout.
*A storm of the Russian Kuril Islands has been issued in the wake of Hurricane Lane which is expected to hit the area late Monday, the press service of the Russian Emergency Ministry said on the island of Sakhalin.

*Hit the powerful lane south of Japan resulting in the disruption of flights and rail services, the day of the general election.
*The Japanese Meteorological Agency said Hurricane Lane, a Category 4 storm, had arrived east of Okinawa Island and was moving northeast on Sunday morning, carrying winds of up to 40 kilometers per hour.
*Hurricane lane is expected to approach the capital Monday morning, before heading east toward the North Pacific.
The meteorological agency issued warnings of heavy rains and floods, including in Tokyo, even with the hurricane expected to decline to become Category III by Sunday evening.
Warnings of heading the hurricane lane towards the island of Hawaii
*Officials at the National Hurricane Lane in Honolulu warned of the hurricane lane’s move toward the US archipelago of Hawaii, accompanied by floods.
*The Earth is accompanied by stormy winds of between 160 and 310 kilometers per hour.
*The island of Hawaii was exposed.
*In August, to hurricane “Hector”, but was rated fourth, did not cause any losses, while the wind speed was about 15 kilometers per hour, was a hurricane lane 565 kilometers from the shores of Hawaii.
*Stability refers to unusually warm and humid conditions in the lower atmosphere, possibly cooler than usual conditions in the upper atmosphere. Wind shear, in this case, refers to the direction of wind-changing, increasing wind speed, with high. For example, the wind will be south of 15 mph on a surface, changing to a southwesterly or westerly wind of 50 mph at a height of 5,000 feet.
*This kind of wind shear and instability usually only exists by a cold front and low-pressure system. The intense spinning of a tornado is partly the result of currents and downdrafts in thunderstorms (caused by unstable air) interaction with the wind shear, resulting in the tilt of the wind shear to form a straight spiral hull. Helping the process along, the cyclonically flowing air circulates around the hurricane lane and is slowly spinning in a counterclockwise direction (in the northern hemisphere), intersecting inward toward the thunderstorms, which leads to a faster spin. This is the same process that causes an ice skater to spin faster when she pulls her arms in towards her body.
*Other processes can enhance the formation of a hurricane lane. For example, the dry air in the middle atmosphere can be quickly cooled by rain in thunderstorms, and reinforce the dud drafts that ASSIST in shaping the hurricane lane. Note that in almost every picture you see from a tornado formed a tornado on the border between the dark clouds (the rising current of the storm) and the bright clouds (the area below the storm), a sign of the importance of currents and downdrafts to the formation of a hurricane lane.
*Also, a strong thunderstorm isolated before the crying line that then merges with the crying line often becomes tornadic; isolated storms are more likely to form hurricanes than the lines of the storms, since an isolated storm can form a more symmetrical flow pattern around it, Less competition for unstable air which feeds the storm than if it were part of a line connected (cry line) of storms.
*Because both instability and wind shear are necessary to form a hurricane lane, hurricanes can sometimes occur weak when wind shear conditions are strong, but the atmosphere is not very unstable. For example, this sometimes happens in California in the winter when a strong low-pressure system comes on the beach. Similarly, hurricanes can occur weakly when the air mass is very unstable but has little wind shear.
*For example, Florida – which reports more hurricanes than any other country in the United States – has many hurricanes weaker than this diversity. Of course, the most violent hurricanes occur when both strong instability and strong wind shear exist, which in the United States occurs in the central part of the country during the spring, and to a lesser extent during the fall.
*The hurricane lane hit western Japan on Tuesday, accompanied by torrential rain and heavy winds, as the hurricane lane arrived in the southern part of Tokushima Prefecture, about 600 kilometers southwest of Tokyo, according to the meteorological agency.
*The video, which was circulated by a number of activists of the social networking site “Twitter”, strong winds and strong rain and the extent of damage caused, while the authorities issued warnings to about 280 thousand people to leave their homes as the activity of wind and rain.
*Hurricane Lane is the strongest hurricane to hit Japan in 25 years.
*A powerful earthquake hit the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido on Thursday night, causing a landslide and a number of people were injured, others besieged and electricity cut off from several areas
*Footage from the air, broadcast by Japan’s National Broadcasting Corporation (NHK), showed a landslide along a chain of hills in the rural town of Atsumi.
*According to PCHR, about 10 people were taken to hospital after being injured, and one of them was seriously injured.
*NHK showed footage showing the collapse of a brick wall and smashed the glass in a house. Local police were quoted as saying there were power outages and some people were trapped in collapsed buildings.
*Japan’s Meteorological Agency said the earthquake that hit the country on Wednesday morning was 6.7 magnitudes.
*This comes at a time when Japan has not yet succumbed to the hurricane lane, which has ravaged much of Japan’s archipelago and has also caused considerable material damage.
*The hurricane lane swept through the archipelago from southwest to north, accompanied by strong winds of a top speed of 216 km / h and heavy rain. The cyclone’s strength has been reduced to a storm.
*Prime Minister Shinto Abe said his government had established a command center to coordinate rescue and relief efforts. His Government’s highest priority was to save lives.
*Japan is experiencing many hurricane lane and earthquakes every year, but Hurricane Lane has distinguished itself from those hurricanes that have not seen the archipelago for 25 years, although its human and material losses have been lower than many feared.
*By midday, the epicenter of the hurricane had reached the Pacific Ocean off the city of Mito, about 100 km northeast of Tokyo, and is expected to retreat into a tropical storm within hours as it winds further eastward over the ocean.
*Authorities canceled about 100 domestic flights, stopped some trains, and cut off about 2,000 homes, but Tokyo’s extensive transport network continued to operate almost as usual.
*Japan has been hit by successive air disasters in the past six weeks, including a heat wave that has killed at least 120 people in different parts.
