According to the weather report the typhoon was supposed to come yesterday! So I cancelled my solo trip to Kiso Valley but it was so sunny yesterday when i woke up -_-
Then when I checked the report again it says it'd come at night till this morning. It only rained a little last night and this morning I woke up to heavy rain -____- I'm supposed to go shopping today haih.
We weren't really hit by the typhoon *touch wood!* but there was heavy rain and really strong wind. But this is the first time that I've "heard" such strong wind blowing. (actually i had similar experience before but that was at the peak of Mt.Soraksan in Korea during winter!) Heard the typhoon is heading to Tokyo now *gasps* it has also done quite a damage so far :(
So new to all these natural disasters! Malaysians and Singaporeans are really lucky!
Last month we had an earthquake nearby but not in my city, there was only a small quake but me being me, thought my bed was broken and wow the wind is so strong WTH I even got off my bed to check if my bed was really broken -_- And then last week or so there were reallllllly heavy rain in Aichi area. Guerilla rain is the name, I heard. So heavy that there were floods everywhere and trains were stopped.
But I'm really impressed with the Japanese, most of them are trained in school so they know what to do and their news get updated so fast! And the govt (or whatever organization that's operating) sends alert to all citizens with smartphones (not sure if they send to those not using smartphones as most of my colleagues are smartphone users..) really cool. but I think they can do something with the melody they use for the alert though. Sounds too chirpy and happy lol
