It's not here yet? It's been lashing down in Chiba since at least 6am.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

A tropical storm slowly losing momentum every hour. Not really a typhoon.

2 ( +6 / -4 )

Looks terrifying in the picture. Like those perennial NHK shots of drops of rain on a road, gently swaying trees, a few waves splashing against concrete and an umbrella blowing inside out.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

Cool looking forward to the sound of wind and rain as it helps me to fall asleep

Typhoon Yun-yeung

No one here calls it by the name. It's typhoon 13.

NHK showed a trash can got blown over earlier.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

It never reached typhoon strength. The maximum it reached was Tropical Storm and dropped to Tropical Depression before making landfall.

Check for yourselves.

It's stalled off the coast and losing strength.

Thought typhoons supposed to be more frequent and stronger due to climate change.

I love the "umbrella turned inside out" clip. Bad weather aint by the same without it.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

Typhoons that hit Tokyo are always wimpy

Flew back from Okinawa to Haneda today. No problem. Flew into LAX during Hilary too, no problem. They seem to be really hyping up these storms lately.

it was raining quite a lot of the time when I went out earlier. I had my umbrella with me, so was fine you see.

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

Kind of used to all the hype now.

The railway line in Chiba is Sotobo Line, not Gaibo Line.

Moderator; Thanks. It has been corrected.

"Thought typhoons supposed to be more frequent and stronger due to climate change."

Or maybe they are becoming weaker and less frequent due to climate change.

So unless the typhoon comes and flattens your house it is all a scam?

I haven't read the latest thinking on this, but I understand the IPCC had no clear opinion on changes to tropical cyclones (i.e. typhoons, hurricanes, etc.). There was a general view that the frequency of tropical cyclones would remain the same or fall (66% probability), but that the severity of the strongest tropical cyclones would increase.
