Typhoon Lan (Weather)

Lan is a disaster looking for a place to happen

From a purely selfish perspective, the good news is that there's a rare total accordance amongst the models and they have it going due north

Typhoon Lan is making landfall in central Japan. The usual scenario is that typhoons will be petering out by the time they reach Japan but Lan looks to be retaining significant punch even though it has dropped off from its super typhoon status

Good news is that it is travelling at 40kph so it will pass through quite quickly

Yep, and I know from recent experience that when a typhoon hits an area that hasn't been hit by a typhoon in many years, lots of things break. Lots of trees come down.
