Typhoon Yagi weakens, still warning of heavy rain

Typhoon Yagi weakened to a tropical storm over the Pacific near Japan early Thursday morning, but the weather agency continues to warn of heavy rain for eastern parts of the country.

The Japan Meteorological Agency said the tropical storm was moving slowly east-northeast after losing its typhoon status near the Izu island chain south of Tokyo before 3 a.m.

The agency forecasts that strong winds and high tidal waves will continue into Friday on the Pacific coast of eastern Japan and on the Izu Islands, while warning of torrential rain and possible landslides in those areas.
