Typhoon Maliksi looming off Japan

Thursday October 4, 2012 - 18:36 EST

The Japan Meteorological Agency is warning of a strong typhoon moving towards the country's north-eastern Pacific coast.

Typhoon Maliksi, packing winds of up to 126 kilometres per hour, was in the Pacific Ocean east of Tokyo around Thursday noon, moving north-northeast.

The typhoon was not expected to hit the Japanese archipelago directly but was forecast to move along the north-eastern Pacific coast, the agency said.
It has warned of six-metre waves along parts of the coast which were ravaged by the 2011 Japanese tsunami.
