Powerful typhoon Jongdari to hit Japan

Hundreds of flights have been cancelled in Japan as the country braces for a powerful typhoon, bringing winds of up to 180km/h (110mph).

Typhoon Jongdari (or "skylark" in Korean), is expected to make landfall on the country's main island, Honshu, late on Saturday or early on Sunday.

The storm comes less than a month after floods killed more than 200 people, and then a heatwave left dozens dead.

Japan's Meteorological Agency has told locals to be ready to evacuate.

At 20:40 local time (11:40 GMT) the category 1 Jongdari was situated about 200km south of Tokyo and forecast to make landfall close to the city of Nagoya.
