A rare site in Tokyo. Supermarket shelves were empty last night by 7pm. Keiko and I went out this afternoon to the local 7-11 for ice coffees. We were the last customers as the store was closing at 1pm. There was no food or drinks left in the store!
As of 3:30pm JST we are now under special emergency warnings including evacuation advisory conditions. Wind speeds and rain amounts are unprecedented with the imminent danger of landslides and flooding throughout Tokyo. However, the worst of the storm will not be evident until about 9pm through midnight.
Two large rivers flow through Adachi. Our location should not be impacted but it will be a long night of watching. Fortunately, we have not lost power.
