Typhoon! It's working its way up the Japanese archipeligo and should be here in a few hours. The winds were at 90km/hr this morning but have risen to 126km/hr. There are 3 people confirmed dead, 1 still missing and 73 injured. Houses washed away, wide areas flooded, thousands evacuated.
I have closed up the weather shutters to ride out the storm. We are fairly sheltered here, on high ground a long way from the sea, so we will be fine. It is not a day to be out and about.
