Typhoon Namadol is expected to have a higher impact, the official added, and had the potential to be worse than Typhoon Jebi in 2018 which cost (re)insurers about $5.5B, and left 14 people dead. Typhoon Hagibis had more than $10B in losses to reinsurance markets and caused widespread power cuts in 2019.

The websites of Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways announce flight cancellations in the airports of Kagoshima, Miyazaki and Kumamoto before the arrival of Typhoon Nanmadol. The interruptions will add additional costs to the expected wind damage.
