Japanese authorities are on alert for the arrival of a typhoon equally strong with Katrina, which is expected to hit the Japanese coasts next week. Typhoon Nabi (butterfly in Korean) is packaging winds up to 180km per hour and moves at 20km per hour. (Hurricane Katrina, which devastated the US Gulf Coast this week, sustained winds reaching 240km per hour). Nabi is 200km away from Okinotorishima island, 1,700km south of Tokyo. The threatening butterfly will reach the Japanese shores on Monday and is to hit the Okinawa islands first, while it will hit Kyushu island on Tuesday. The Japanese meteorological service support the Pacific typhoon will ease in strength before afflicting the coasts of Japan. However, experts have described it as "extremely strong" and urged authorities to be on alert.
