Extreme Weather Update: Francisco likely down to tropical storm as it makes landfall on mainland Japan

Typhhon Francisco will largely miss mainland Japan on Thursday, according to last night’s (Tuesday night’s) report on http://www.westernpacificweather.com. The wind strength is less of a threat, but apparently we can expect heavy rains,  with possible flooding in low-lying parts of Tokyo.

Looks like it’s 50/50 as to whether our students will get to do their -bon dance at our school’s Japan Day Festival this Friday!

BTW, for anyone wondering about Typhoon Lekima, according to everything I’ve seen it’s already tracking west, away from Japan, with no expectation of landfall.
