The typhoon is mostly gone

The typhoon came early morning and it rained a lot with strong wind. It’s still windy, but it’s now sunny and warm. The trains were stopped, but are now running. I heard there’s been one death and a tornado-like wind hit Chiba prefecture. I slept through most of it. It seems like typhoons always come while I’m sleeping.

Typhoon number 18 (Melor)

It looks like Typhoon number 18, or Melor, is forecast to hit the Tokyo area on Thursday.  At the moment, it’s being called a Super Typhoon, which is a very powerful, intense typhoon.  By the time it arrives here, it’s supposed to be a strong typhoon with wind speeds 144 km/h and wind gusts of up to 216 km/h.  At the moment, it has wind speeds of 198 km/h and gusts of up to 288 km/h.  If it does hit the Tokyo area as expected on Thursday, this would likely be the most powerful typhoon I’ve experienced.  This website tracks the typhoon and shows the forecast.  After the typhoon, it’s supposed to be sunny and warm.  We’ll see how this storm goes.
