Earthquake, typhoon, earthquake

Eventful 2 days, wasn’t it? A 6.9 magnitude earthquake on Sunday, then a typhoon that turned away from this area suddenly. Did it rain heavily? I was asleep. At 5:07am, I woke up, though. It was a 6.4 magnitude earthquake. My books almost fell down, and the main light in my apartment was swinging. I couldn’t hear any heavy rain, though. Exciting couple of days, wasn’t it?

Typhoon number 9 in the middle of the night

It’s late.  I need to go to bed.  But here’s a great video!  Actually, it’s not very exciting.  Just made it a few minutes ago.  Rain is exciting, isn’t it?  The typhoon is finally arriving.  I’ll probably sleep through the worst of it.  Good night!

I need to learn to read the time, typhoon update

It appears the typhoon won’t be here for a few more hours.  I’ve been reading the time on the typhoon forecast as Japan time, when it’s actually UTC.  That’s a 9 hour difference.  The weather should be really bad tomorrow morning and afternoon.  I’ll bring my camera to work.  It’ll be fairly quiet this week, as there are no kids classes and some students are away on holidays.  I’ll pop outside to take a video or two during the bad weather.  But they won’t be up on Youtube until I get home.

Storm update

It got sunny!  And now it’s not raining at all.  Actually, I’m reading in some places that it’s a typhoon, and other places say it’s a tropical storm.  Hmm, which is it?  Anyway, it’s going to be raining heavily later today.

Typhoon number 9

I’ve decided to take some videos throughout today to show how the typhoon progresses.  Right now, it’s pretty calm.  It’s about 28 degrees and very humid.  The rain is light, the wind is light, and the cicadas are noisy.  Last I checked, 12 people have died due to landslides and flooding in Okayama and Hyogo prefectures.  Anyway, enjoy the video.

Earthquake yesterday, typhoon today

Well, we had a pretty decent sized earthquake yesterday, and now a typhoon is heading this way.  Typhoon number 9 (Etau) is expected to make landfall in the Tokyo area late tonight/early tomorrow morning.  Heavy rain will be coming!  9 people have already died from this typhoon.  I guess I should go shopping for food before the heavy rain comes.  Tomorrow is going to be a very hot day!
