Typhoon MARIA is now changing its track toward north. The most likely point of landfall was Shikoku this morning, but now somewhere between Kii Peninsula and Tokai Region, so the forecast track is more and more toward east. This change of track may be due to interference between typhoons.

Typhoon MARIA was formed near Ogasawara Islands. This typhoon is yet to be intensified strongly, but the forecasts say that it will draw near Chichi-jima as early as the next morning, so Ogasawara Islands may be affected by this typhoon soon.
