At least 5 dead in Japan... Damages/casualties mostly due to heavy rainfall...

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Powerful Typhoon Lan made landfall on the Pacific coast of central Japan early Monday, leaving at least five people dead as it battered a wide area with heavy rain and strong winds.

The typhoon, which hit Shizuoka Prefecture around 3 a.m., caused floods and mudslides as it traveled along the Pacific coast of the largest main island of Honshu.

With an atmospheric pressure of 950 hectopascals at its center and winds of up to 198 kilometers per hour, the season's 21st typhoon brought particularly heavy rainfall in the western region, dumping 800 millimeters in the 48 hours to Sunday evening in Wakayama Prefecture and 700 mm in Mie Prefecture, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

I got a 126 kt intensity for Lan near peak intensity using the measured 923 mb and JTWC data from 18Z October 21st. That's also 111 kt using standard 10 minute winds or 100 kt using the corresponding 10 minute winds from the Koba table.

Using a 923 mb central pressure, 18 kt forward speed,
272 nm average TS radius, and 25.5º latitude, KZC outputs
a 126 kt 1 min wind velocity with an OCI of 1006 mb.


However, the recon 923 mb pass didn't come until 01Z, October 19, when Lan was visibly degrading. The actual pressure at 18Z may have been in the 915-920 mb range. Coupled with the other given information above, 915 mb spits out 135 kt.

JMA released Lan's best track today and the estimated peak intensity was revised to 915mb/100kt.
