After the Typhoon

Filed under: — Andy @ 5:36 pm

The typhoon hit Okinawa hard. It was right under a category 5 and one of the biggest and most devastating in years.

I have never seen such powerful winds and rain. The typhoon took out the power to our building early on and for the entire day was left with no power or running water. The island sustained massive damage everywhere. Trees were uprooted, roads were destroyed, and streets were flooded. At one point a satellite dish from above came crashing down in our balcony.

When the typhoon had passed the next day the worst of the rain came. Within 10 minutes of downpour sewers were flooded and streets became impassible. Two days after on Sunday, shops are still closed and the cleanup continues and will continue for a while.


  1. Shit, man. Glad you and Ken are okay.
