TOKYO Nike React Hyperdunk Italia , Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- A strong typhoon made landfall again on Monday afternoon in western Japan, lashing areas across the southwest of the Japanese archipelago and leaving havoc in its wake.

According to the weather agency here, Typhoon Noru made landfall at 4:15 p.m. local time (0715 GMT) at north of Wakayama Prefecture, and is expected to bring heavy downpours and strong winds to a wide swathe of the prefecture and surrounding areas.

Wakayama is located on the Kii Peninsula in the Kansai region on Japan's Honshu island.

Noru, the fifth typhoon of the season Nike Air Skylon 2 Italia , which has already claimed the lives of 2 people and left at least 17 other injured, is moving in a northwesterly direction at a relatively slow speed, the weather agency said.

Specifically, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) said that the typhoon was moving at a speed of 20 kilometers per hour, meaning that sustained heavy downpours and constantly powerful winds could be expected.

The storm has an atmospheric pressure of 970 hectopascals and packing strong gusts clocked at 162 kph Nike React Element 87 Italia , the JMA said.

The JMA has warned of rivers breaching their banks and causing flooding as well as landslides. It also said that citizens residing along the route of the typhoon should be vigilant for stormy winds and high waves.

Local media said that more than 17,000 people have been ordered to evacuate or are under evacuation advisories in western Japan as a result of the typhoon.

In central Japan, "tens of thousands of people have been told to prepare to evacuate," Japan's public broadcaster NHK said.

The typhoon has caused major disruption to transportation networks, with West Japan Railway Co. canceling some of its operations between Shikoku and the Honshu main island.

More than 70 Shinkansen bullet train services have also been halted Nike Air Span II Italia , it said.

Kansai International Airport in Osaka Prefecture said it cancelled more than 120 domestic and international flights, while carriers All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines said they have cancelled more than 200 flights.

Rainfall of more than 330 millimeters in some parts of Kochi, and more than 260 mm in the town of Kamikatsu in Tokushima Prefecture, both in Japan's Shikoku region, was recorded as of Monday morning Nike Vandal 2K Italia , the JMA said.

The weather agency also said that in the next 24-hour period through noon on Tuesday, levels of rain are expected to reach 400 mm in the Kinki region in south Honshu, and the Tokai region that runs along the edge of the Pacific Ocean.

Meanwhile as much as 300 mm of precipitation is expected in the Hokuriku and Kanto-Koshin regions, which includes Japan's capital city of Tokyo.

Wind speeds are expected to range between 162 kph and 144 kph, the weather agency said.

The typhoon already pummeled the island of Kyushu with heavy rain and powerful winds on Sunday.

The region Nike Flex 2018 RN Italia , the southwesternmost of Japan's main islands, is still reeling in the wake of torrential rains battering the area just one month ago.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- Liu Meng secured China's ninth table tennis gold medal of the Rio Olympics by defeating compatriot Lei Lina in the women's singles class 9 final in Rio on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old, whose impairment was the result of a car crash, needed just 23 minutes to wrap up the match 3-0 (12-10, 13-11, 13-11) at Riocentro.

In the bronze medal duel, Poland's Karolina Pek came back from two sets down to beat Brazil's Danielle Rauen 3-2 (8-11, 8-11, 11-9, 11-5, 11-5) in a match that lasted 39 minutes.

KARIM Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo found the target as Real Madrid eased past Mexico’s Club America 2-0 last night to reach the Club World Cup final in Japan.

The Spanish giant will face shock finalists Kashima Antlers, the J-League champions Nike Odyssey React Italia , in Yokohama on Sunday as it looks to capture its second world title in three years and fifth in total.

“Our sole aim was to reach the final — so it’s job done,” Real coach Zinedine Zidane told reporters after watching his side extend its club-record unbeaten run to 36 matches in all competitions.

“We didn’t have a great rhythm in the first half, but in the second half we created more chances and Cristiano was able to kill the game off so I’m very happy,” added the Frenchman.

“It was a long flight to Japan and we have very few days to rest and prepare for the final, but we have come here to win this Club World Cup.”

His compatriot Benzema said: “It was a hard game against a tough team. The conditions were difficult too with the long journey we’ve had Nike Epic React Italia , but we played well and won the game — now for the final.”

With Ronaldo firing blanks until scoring with virtually the last kick of the game, Benzema struck in first-half stoppage time, finishing clinically with the outside of his right boot after a deft pass from Toni Kroos.

Ronaldo, who scooped his fourth Ballon d’Or earlier this week, had already squandered a gilt-edged opportunity by heading against the post.

The Portuguese superstar also saw two stinging efforts blocked by goalkeeper Moises Munoz but his dogged persistence paid off when he swept home from a tight angle deep into injury t.
