    Greatest name for a Typhoon ever.

    Residents of Japan, including Tokyo, are bracing for a landfall by powerful Typhoon Phanfone.

    Phanfone is no longer a super typhoon, the status it briefly achieved Saturday local time, but remains a dangerous typhoon and on a path to mainland Japan.

    Residents should be finalizing necessary preparations and heeding any evacuation orders as Phanfone barrels closer.

    Phanfone will take a curve to the northeast through the rest of the weekend, turning away from the Ryukyu Islands. However, the powerful typhoon will still pass close enough to graze the islands from Amami northward with some rain and wind through Sunday.
