Rugby World Cup, F1 and typhoons: what could happen?
A powerful typhoon is bearing down on Japan and could severely disrupt the last round of pool games at the Rugby World Cup this weekend -- not to mention Formula One's Japanese Grand Prix.

Here are some key questions about Typhoon Hagibis, the 19th of the annual typhoon season, and its possible impact on a key weekend of sport.

- How dangerous is it? -

The Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) currently ranks Hagibis as "violent" -- its highest possible classification -- packing maximum gusts of up to 280 kilometres per hour.

It is predicted to weaken considerably by the time it gets closer to Japan, but it could still potentially be one of most powerful typhoons in recent years, the JMA warned.

On its current course, the eye of the storm is forecast to clip the southeastern corner of Japan near Tokyo and Yokohama, a similar trajectory to Typhoon Faxai which caused massive transport disruption a fortnight before the Rugby World Cup.
