Japan is braced for torrential rain and 120mph winds as Super Typhoon Vongfong sweeps north towards the country’s southern islands. 

Nasa astronaut Reid Wiseman wrote: ‘I’ve never seen anything like it’…….

The storm, which will be Japan’s second typhoon in a week, was moving extremely slowly on Friday afternoon – raising the risk of landslides and flooding when it makes landfall this weekend. 

Satellite images taken of Vongfong, which means ‘wasp’ in Cantonese, suggest that the eye of the hurricane is approximately 50 miles wide.
