(Super) Typhoon Usagi

Post by GimiGlider » Sat Sep 21, 2013 5:48 am

There is a (Super) Typhoon by the name of Usagi, Category 4 heading to Hong Kong dead on. (As can be seen by my avatar), it is bigger than the island of Taiwan...It's the strongest typhoon this year according to some sources.

Pretty wise proverb, eh?

You guys have emergency plans sorted? Torches? Food to last 7 days? WATER? This could get hairy!

You guys got lucky somewhat. You still get the rain, but averted the worst part of it.
