49 years, time to reset the clock

Yesterday Japan was wracked with the second typhoon of October. The last time two typhoons hit in the month of October was 49 years ago. The one that hit yesterday was the largest of the year with many fatalities throughout the country.

Most of the early typhoons creeped along the northwestern half of Japan but the last two have wreaked havoc across the southeastern parts including Osaka and Tokyo.

No damage to report from home, but then again I live on the fourth floor and away from rivers and oceans, so I don't usually expect much damage.
