Winds are picking up and there already have been some torrential rains too! Actually feel sorry for some folks down here who are still without power after that weekends typhoon.

The hits just keep in coming. Japan must have done something to P-off the gods.

Some areas here in Aichi-Ken are still without electricity after the last one. . .

Beware of loose ground from 3 out of the last 4 weekends stormy.

25 is essentially following the same track as #24, so as others have said, be mindful of how things are, soil will be saturated, heavy and loose, if you see the color of run off changing to brown, move from where you are if you can.

All drains unblocked, everything charged, generator topped up and the neighbours checked on (They are a real tough pair! Probably checking on me later.) Last Saturday / Sunday was nuts, this is going to be no different. Stay safe.

The weather is terrible (or weird) just about everywhere. Hope there aren't any disasters and hold on tight everyone.

It’s usually the west side that drops the most rain so hopefully Japan will be spared of more mudslides and flooding.

Looks a bit weaker, but will skirt along the northern coast and probably zap Hokkaido pretty badly. The trouble is that the ground is already soaked, and some places are already without power. Take care everyone.

Why this Typhoon takeoff during the Weekends only.I realized that most of the natural disasters happens only during the weekends.I almost decided not to fly during the weekends.

Eermm.. rotaredom. Global warming causes heating up of the sea, causing more extreme weather. Delete away. Have many links...

Nah. Nothing to do with any deities. Much simpler than that - climate change.

Stay safe, all.

If you live in a high rise apartment in the city, I suggest putting tape on the windows on an X formation.

Real shame about this typhoon coming on the weekend- had it been a weekday, people might have gotten some time off...Now its just going to ruin the 3 day weekend..oh well

@Aly Rustom, it depends where you live in Japan, the Yui Rail and bus services have stopped on Okinawa's main island, we’re on typhoon holiday today and tomorrow, will have passed by Saturday. So, not “oh well” but, oh, very good. Stay safe everyone!
