Tokyo is not spared anything. COVID-19, suffocating heat and now ‘Nepartak’. This is how they have baptized the typhoon (tropical storm number eight of the season) of medium degree that already causes problems today. The organization postponed the rowing and archery competitions to Wednesday and the start of the tennis tournament (in the Ariake only the plant has a cover) has been affected.
According to forecasts, it will bring strong winds (over 100 km / h) and rains in the Tohoku (northeast) and Kanto regions, where Tokyo is located. “It is a tropical storm of grade 3 on the scale of 5 from other countries, only in Japan we call that typhoon. Don’t worry too much, ”said games spokesman Masa Takaya. “It is the weakest category. Anyway, it is still a typhoon ”.
Only the surfers are happy, who at Tsurigasaki Beach, 145 km from Tokyo, expect better waves of double magnitude.
