TYPHOON

The fall is when we get typhoons. Typhoon Wipha  hit us on the night of October 15/16.
Tokyo area usually doesn't get hit, despite being on a huge bay.
As such, the city I live in and the city I work in closed all their schools as a safety precaution.
My wife wasn't so lucky and had to go out.
Unfortunately for her, she was delayed about 30 minutes while the fire department had to deal with flooding at the bottom of our hill.
 


 

Most of the casualties were in the Izu islands chain, south of Tokyo. Our area saw some localized flooding. My neighbors field flooded.

Once the wind and rain stops, everyone goes outside and starts to clean up.
Pictures to follow.
