Yesterday, due to the typhoon, the JR local trains were out of service in our area. So instead of heading to work by train, my boss picked my up and drove me there.
damage from the typhoon on the side of the (low) mountain, thus covered with blue tarp.
Even though I did not see flooding from the car (along the highway,) there were areas that had flooding. One of my students told me his family had to evacuate because of flooding. 😦
Helicopters have been out searching (I presume) for flooded area, victims, etc. especially in the rural (and in Fukushima Prefecture, that probably means mountainous) parts of Japan.
