Typhoon Season

Hello fellow JETs!

As you know, a typhoon has passed by the Fukuoka area today. As we are approaching the midst of the typhoon season, it would be a good idea to familiarize yourself with what you should do before and during a typhoon.

A typhoon is a tropical cyclone. During a typhoon you can expect strong wind and heavy rain. Before a typhoon hits, it is wise to secure outdoor belongings (e.g. plants on your balcony). In the event of a strong typhoon with very strong wind and heavy rain, it is recommended that you stay indoors and wait for the typhoon to pass.

For those of you who will be travelling this summer, please be aware of the chance of typhoon, which often causes delay and cancellation of flights and boat rides, etc.
