Poor people. Let's all hope this typhoon does NOT head their way but in another direction.

This is soooooooo not needed at this time.

Bunch of panic merchants! The typhoon is not gonna go anywhere near there!

Disillusioned: You've never seen a typhoon change course once it comes close to landfall? I'd say if it continues its current course THAT would be the rarity.

That headline could have said "Flood-battered Kyushu wearily eyes typhoon" (which is was I first thought it said) and it wouldn't have been at all wrong.
Poor sods. I do hope the typhoon avoids them. They need a break.

Disillusioned, typhoons that don't hit Kyushu directly more often than not tend to trigger any rain front that may be in the vicinity into major heavy rainfall especially on the Pacific side (ie Miyazaki, Oita, and parts of Kagoshima...)
So...watch this space,
and for the sake of us here in Kyushu...let's all hope for the best.

My fiancee is in Oita. She wasn't one of those evacuated but says the rain has been unbelievable. I'm definitely hoping they get a break.

My thoughts are with everyone in Kyushu. I hope you all eventually get given a break! You've had more than your fair share of terrible weather recently.
