Supertyphoon on course to hit Japan


A supertyphoon on course to hit Japan over the weekend is as powerful as the deadly storm that ripped through the Philippines in 2013 killing thousands of people, meteorologists said Wednesday The monstrous storm, named Vongfong, was picking up speed as it churned through the far west of the Pacific Ocean. "Its strength is very much similar to Haiyan," which ravaged the Philippines in November, said a meteorologist at the Japan Meteorological Agency.
