Re: Those in charge of the Scottish rugby team are doing the team no favours by
Iím sitting here in north Chiba right in the middle of it. Earlier this evening there was a whirlwind that flipped a car and killed a man. A few hours later there was a 5.4 earthquake.
The game hasnít been cancelled yet. Letís see the state of the place tomorrow. A little perspective please Scottish rugby people.
complaining hourly about their game being cancelled. There's so much devastation possible that it's hard to get your head around their constant whining. The widespread effects of a hurricane/typhoon are unimaginable if you haven't lived through one. Have a big can of Shut The Fukc Up and go home if you have to. Like the Italians.
'At nature's mercy'
Analysis by William Leonardo, BBC News
Japan is used to being at nature's mercy but this year is different.
Typhoon Hagibis - a massive storm expected to bring record rainfall - is forecast to make a direct hit on the greater Tokyo region, only weeks after another strong storm brought destruction to neighbouring Chiba prefecture.
This even larger typhoon has a huge swathe of Japan's main Honshu island in its sights. Nearly two million people have been urged to evacuate.
Many areas have already seen flooding as heavy rain falls. Tens of thousands of homes are without power. Flights and train services have been cancelled.
It comes as the world's eyes are fixed on Japan - the host of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
