Nippon Steel announced that it will temporarily suspend production at one of its manufacturing bases in the city of Kimitsu, Chiba Prefecture, as a measure to prepare for the coming typhoon. Nippon Steel will halt production halt at its Kimitsu Works. Gusty winds from the powerful typhoon Faxai last month knocked down a 70-meter-tall chimney of Kimitsu Works for processing iron materials.

Typhoon Hagibis is forecast to approach mainland Japan over the weekend. Packing winds of 150 mph, Hagibis, the behemoth super typhoon crashing through the northwest Pacific, could impact Japan as the equivalent of a Category 1 or 2 hurricanes this weekend.
