Japan is bracing for the arrival of a powerful typhoon, Vongfong, which officials have said will be the strongest storm to hit Japan this year.

The southern island of Okinawa is likely to bear the brunt of the storm when it makes landfall late Saturday or early Sunday.

Storm tracking website Tropical Storm Risk shows Vongfong losing power as it moves northeast to the rest of Japan.

It follows the path of Phanfone, which killed nine people earlier this week.

An official from Japan’s Meteorological Agency told Reuters news agency: “There is no question that (Vongfong) is an extremely large, extremely powerful typhoon.”
