Forecasts of Typhoon Jebi being the most powerful to hit Japan in 25 years actually turned out to be accurate.
“What the hell just happened?” Yumi Takazaki reported this morning on NHK news.
“We were predicting a destructive, all powerful typhoon, but we didn’t think it would really transpire.”

Many foreigners were also caught up in the devastating storm.
“The wind was so powerful I just threw my umbrella away in the can hole of a vending machine,” said 8-years-a-gaijin Kevin Cartwright.
“And it was a good one too, not one of those shitty 100 yen transparent plastic ones – it was painful to see it go.”
