CHICAGO — United is offering travel waivers for passengers whose flight schedules have been impacted by Tropical Storm Nanmadol.
Nanmadol is tracking over southern and central Japan this week, bringing flooding rain and gusty winds. Drenching rain could result in flooding and mudslides, mainly in western Japan. The heavy tropical rainfall is also expected to skirt southern South Korea.
The system made landfall on Japan’s southernmost island, Kyushu, early morning local time on July 4.
