England and Scotland wait on Rugby World Cup typhoon decision

England and Scotland will find out on Thursday morning when their final pool games of the Rugby World Cup are to be rescheduled.
A media conference has been called by world Rugby to 4am BST in which the update will be issued on whether Englands World Cup clash with France is going to be cancelled or moved.
Super Typhoon Hagibis is due to sweep through Tokyo this weekend, also impacting the Pool C decider in International Stadium Yokohama on Saturday and Scotlands critical group showdown against Japan 24 hours later.
The options are to cancel the Nations fixture or move to Oita, where the quarter-finals happen to be staged.
With Hagibis because of have proceeded by the end of the weekend, even Scotland could see their clash with Japan delayed by 24 hours but played in precisely exactly the same venue.
The storm, that on Wednesday was described by the Japanese Meteorological Agency asviolent, has become a Category 5 super typhoon with winds reaching 180mph.
It is many times that the dimensions of Typhoon Faxai, which murdered three people, brought Tokyo into a standstill to the afternoon of Englands arrival to the World Cup, delaying their departure from Narita Airport by half an hour, and left a million homes without power.
Satellite pictures of the weather event reveal that it is the magnitude of Japan and shows no sign of deviating from its route or diminishing in size.
Irelands Pool A match against Samoa on Saturday along with Wales Pool D battle with Uruguay on Sunday are around the other side of Japan – in Fukuoka and Kumamoto, respectively – so most likely out of the Key path of this storm.
A Met Office spokesperson informed that the PA news service:The general story is still the same. Typhoon Hagibis from the North Pacific is on trail towards Japan this weekend.
As of Wednesday afternoon, it was situated around 900 miles south of Tokyo with estimated wind speeds of around 120mph and gusts of 170mph. Clearly as Hagibis moves towards Japan it is going to weaken and these wind speeds will collapse.
We are expecting that Hagibis is very likely to make landfall on Saturday, maybe perhaps not too far away from Tokyo. With continual wind strengths of around 90mph and also with gusts of up to 135mph its going to have weakened but by that stage. Along with the winds, were expecting heavy rain along its path.
Clearly with these very strong and intense winds, together using heavy rain, theres probability of significant effect from the damaging winds and also from storm surge. Together with waves and the winds, there is the risk of flash flood as well
In the Tokyo region.
The Met Office spokesperson added:While the location and degree of effect are still fairly uncertain, there is an increasing likelihood Hagibis will affect southern Japan.
