Typhoon Halong (or number 11 as it is known in Japan) is heading to southwest Japan. So far, we're getting just a bunch of wind. I expect we'll get some rain out of it later, today and/or tomorrow.
Japan numbers its typhoons, but English news agencies use names which are taken from countries around the typhoon corridor, on a rotation. The naming system is also used in the Western Hemisphere for hurricanes.
Let's hope everyone stays safe.
