Typhoon Hinnamnor

Typhoon Hinnamnor threatens Japan and has buffeted islands southeast of Okinawa with sustained winds of 120 miles per hour and gusts of up to 172 miles per hour.

The Japan Meteorological Agency forecasts that Hinnamnor would most likely head north toward the Korean Peninsula, warning that the storm could drop more than seven inches of rain on the islands and potentially bring enough force to destroy homes. It is not certain how this storm will impact the Tokyo area.

Typhoon Hinnamnor provides further evidence that climate change increases the frequency of major storms because a warmer ocean provides more of the energy that fuels them.
