Day 195.8 Last typhoon update tonight

17:51 NHK:

– 254,580 homes are without electricity in Shizuoka Prefecture

– At Fukishima Daiichi, they have suspended work near the coastal area as well as work on the tent they are putting in place over reactor #1. Again, TEPCO assures the public that no radioactive water will be released, even though the area is expecting 250mm (10 inches) of rain tonight.

19:32 NHK:

Hundreds of thousands of people across 22 prefectures have been ordered to evacuate due to the possibility of flooding rivers and ponds.

Many train services in Tokyo have been suspended and people are lining up at bus stops, many people stranded at train stations. Some lines began again after 7:00 pm. However, the typhoon is moving quickly and should be leaving Honshu within a few hours. 

It remains to be seen what, if any, damage there will be to the low-lying areas in Tohoku.
