A media conference has been called by world Rugby to 4am BST in.
Super Typhoon Hagibis is expected to sweep this weekend, impacting the Pool C decider in International Stadium Yokohama on Saturday and Scotlands critical group showdown from Japan 24 hours later.
The options are to cancel the Nations fixture or transfer to Oita, where the quarter-finals happen to be staged.
With Hagibis due to have moved by the end of the weekend, even Scotland could see their struggle with Japan postponed by 24 hours played at precisely exactly the exact same venue.
The storm, that on Wednesday was described by the Japanese Meteorological Agency asviolent, has become a Category 5 super typhoon with winds reaching 180mph.
It is many times that the measurements of Typhoon Faxai, which killed three people, attracted Tokyo into a standstill for the day of Englands arrival to the World Cup, slowing their departure from Narita Airport by six hours, and left only a million homes without power.
Satellite images of the weather event reveal it is the size of Japan and reveals no sign of either decreasing in magnitude or deviating from its path.
Irelands Pool A match against Samoa on Saturday and Wales Pool D conflict with Uruguay on Sunday are around the other side of Japan – at Kumamoto and Fukuoka, respectively – therefore most likely out of this storms Most Important path.
A Met Office spokesperson told that the PA news service:The total story is still the same. Typhoon Hagibis in the North Pacific is on track towards Japan this weekend.
At Wednesday afternoon, it was situated around 900 miles south of Tokyo with estimated wind speeds of around 120mph and gusts of 170mph. As Hagibis moves towards Japan it will weaken and these wind speeds will collapse.
Were expecting that Hagibis is likely to make landfall on Saturday, maybe perhaps not too far from Tokyo. By that stage its going to have weakened significantly, but with gusts of up to 135mph and also with wind strengths of around 90mph. Along with the winds, were expecting heavy rain across its route.
Clearly with these exact powerful and intense winds, using heavy rain, there is likelihood of significant effect from the damaging winds and also from storm surge. With all the winds and waves, Theres the risk of flash flood as well
From the Tokyo area
