Typhoon Updates

Some news about the typhoon that struck Kyushu this week. A short report and some photos from the Mainichi Shimbun, and a very sad article about elderly people caught in the typhoon, from the Asahi Shimbun. The Mainichi's front page two days ago showed a military boat full of soldiers cruising down a flooded street, with roofs and street signs just protruding from the water. Only the Japanese lettering on the signs indicated whether they were the US Army in New Orleans or the Japanese Self-Defence Forces in Kagoshima. In an odd way, small tragedies can serve to remind you of greater ones.
