Here in Yamaguchi, the rain came so quickly and so hard in a short space of time - a few hours.

I caught footage of it flooding my street where there was at least 3 inches and a river running down the street. It went from just cloudy to torrential rain and thunderstorm in a matter of moments. And we didn't even get it as bad as Kyushu!

Praying for the victims.

Great. All of Kumamoto was just issued a tornado warning. Kinda missed the wind, actually - it's been two whole days since the typhoon.
