Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Typhoon Melor Arriving in Japan, Leaving Lasting Impression

Posted by feww on October 7, 2009

Typhoon Melor Drenches the Windswept Land of Rising Sun

Wind gusts of up to 60km/h have already been reported in Japan’s Kinki region, about 675km (420 miles) from the center of Typhoon Melor.

Lets hope the overdue large quake which FEWW  forecast for the Tokyo Bay area won’t occur right now, making the typhoon’s impression any deeper.
