Typhoon #14, causes destruction in Japan
Typhoon number 14, a.k.a. Typhoon Nabi has now passed by my hometown of Tokushima, but still looms over northern Japan. According to reports, 11 people are dead, at least 41 injured and 13 are missing in southern and western Japan. Over 100,000 people have been evacuated from Miyazaki prefecture alone. Landslides and flooding have caused the government to dispatch Ground Self-Defense Force units to the hardest hit areas. Last night through the early morning today, Tokushima sustained heavy wind and rain, killing one person. Tokushima was fortunate to be outside the epicenter, as the typhoon curved in a northwesterly direction around the prefecture.
