Tornadoes – here in Japan

Today the sky suddenly turned dark and the winds became ferocious and I heard lightning. Then the skies became clear blue again. I thought it was a quickly passing thunderstorm.

But later I saw on the news that neighboring Chiba and Ibaraki prefectures had gotten hit by strong tornadoes! I don’t think that’s usual here. The news showed destroyed houses and cars that were tossed about. There were injuries, but fortunately nobody was killed.

Meanwhile, I just felt a few earthquakes today.

Tornadoes – here in Japan — 2 Comments

  1. At least 10 years ago there was a tornado which damaged property in Chiba. I know of no other times. The conclusion is, at least in the past, tornados have been rare. Dave
