6 Oct

There’s a 台風 (typhoon) near Tokyo now.

It’s been raining in Tokyo since yesterday…and it’s forecast to rain until Friday.

The TV weather information said that the typhoon will hit Tokyo the day after tomorrow (Thursday). So the rain and wind will be really strong on that day.

If you’re in the Tokyo area, be careful if you have to go out this week…especially Thursday!

The good news is that’s it’s forecast to be sunny from Saturday…so it’ll be nice weather for the upcoming three-day-weekend (Monday’s a holiday (体育の日 (Health Day))).

      Late last night it was raining hard here in Tokyo.
      It’s just about passed Tokyo now. The damage, thankfully, was minimal.

      It’s forecast to become nice and sunny this afternoon and stay that for the rest of the day, and tomorrow, and the entire three-day-weekend!

    I know that schools are closed at least in some parts of Tokyo. (My children are in Kojimachi).

    Funny how little news of this exists outside of Tokyo.

      I’m not sure what you mean.
      It’s all over the national news.

    Hmm, do typhoons usually come this late in the year?

      Most typhoons occur in the summer, but “typhoon season” goes until late October.

    Lets hope that the typhoon will pass through without leaving behind any terrible damages as it has done with the other countries it passed through. I just cant believe the number of natural disasters that just had happened.

      I hope it doesn’t do any damage too!
      But the news today said that it’s headed this way…and it’s not getting weaker yet! 😦

        It’s supposed to hit here in a few hours and pass in the afternoon.

        I also hope that the damage is minimal.
