It was a summer (and perhaps will be an autumn) of superlatives: the shortest rainy season, the hottest months of July and August, the deadliest floods and landslides (in Western Japan and Hokkaido), and the most powerful typhoons on record. Trami, or Typhoon No.24 according to the Japanese nomenclature, is just the latest of a series of weather phenomena that remind us that Mother Nature still rules supreme and unchallenged.
Last night's storm was the strongest I have ever experienced. Our neighbourhood was quite messed up this morning.
Our neighbourhood park was not where you would have liked to spend your night.
I feel for the park staff. Trami will keep them busy for a while.
