Tornado/twister ravages through Tatebayashi, Guma, Japan. Update!
By, Uwe Paschen.
Tatebayashi City (Gunma Prefecture) was hit today by a major tornado/twister causing 21 injured and major destruction with 160 houses being destroyed.
Flying wood destroyed countless windows and cause injuries.
At least 3000 homes are with out power.
Why this news is of importance, for one this area has not know devastation by a typhoon (tornado/Tropical Cyclone) in recorded history and two this was an extremely severe typhoon as well.
Further it is my Wife’s home town and where we where headed to.
Further news to come as it is available.
Video can be seen in link.
The official weather station have not reported a Typhoon as far as I can see but a Cyclone, I did looked it up and the term of tornado, Typhoon and Cyclone can overlap, People here called it all sorts of things and I will put up the correct term once I know for certain my self.
In the mean time do watch the video in the link and you will see for your self what happened here today and what will have to be cleaned up, fixed and rebuild.
A Tornado it is now for certain and not a Typhoon.
