Extreme Weather: Super Typhoon Francisco (Here We Go Again?!?)

Shaping up to be a busy typhoon season here…

Typhoon Wipha hit us last week. It generally spared western Tokyo where I live, but forced some residents of Chiba, southeast of Tokyo, to evacuate, and hit the island of Oshima hard.

This week Super Typhoon Francisco menaces from the southern Pacific. According to this five-day forecast from the Weather Underground website, Francisco could reach us here in Tokyo by mid-afternoon Thursday in the form of a Category 1 typhoon – around the same strength as Typhoon Wipha when it made landfall in Tokyo last Wednesday.

Hmn… my school has its annual Japan Day festival planned for Friday…
