Rugby World Cup: Super Typhoon Hagibis shaping up to be the strongest since 1958
Typhoon Hagibis is shaping up to be a perfect storm.
It could break records, Japan's Meteorological Agency warned on Friday.
In 1958, Typhoon Kanogawa left 1200 Japanese people dead.
The agency says Hagibis – already one of the strongest storms on Earth this year - could bring as much rainfall as Kanogawa did.
Airlines have already cancelled about 1600 flights scheduled for Saturday.
The mega-storm also compelled organisers to cancel two Rugby World Cup matches on Saturday.
It is doubtful whether Sunday’s match between Scotland and Japan will go ahead.
Japan Meteorological Agency has a nifty animation where you can track the expected path and intensity of Typhoon Hagibis.
