Took me 6-7 hours to get a taxi home for ¥20,000.

Seems like whenever the trains go down due to floods or even an earthquake, everyone is totally left at the mercy of cab companies.

Theres no diversion of buses or any other city services to get stranded people back and forth.

Alot of people dropped off their kidz in school, went to work, and couldn’t get home.

imo yesterday people should have been warned to not go to work or take the trains in certain areas.

Rain? Floods? Non-stop? Where?

Oh! How I envy you in Japan!

Here in eastern Canada we are having a drought!

And forest fires! !

A friend in Toyohashi, Aichi had quite a dicey situation with the flooding.

The river near my home was at least 2-5 meters higher level than usual.

Hoping everyone in Japan has been able to come through this latest disaster and the loss of life, injuries and damage will be minimal. Terrifying scenes on the major news programs last night.

In many countries the train companies have replacement bus services of hire them when trains stop.
