"""Super typhoon Man-yi is forecasted to hit Kyushu on Saturday afternoon, the Meteorological Agency has announced, warning of heavy rain, floods, strong winds and high waves in Kyushu and surrounding areas.

As of 8 a.m. on Saturday the typhoon, this year's fourth, was located about 170 kilometers southwest of Makurazaki, Kagoshima Prefecture, and moving northeast at 25 kilometers per hour.

The atmospheric pressure was measured at 945 hectopascals at its center, where wind speeds of up to 45 meters per second were also recorded.

The maximum instantaneous wind speed hit 40.2 meters per second on Tanegashima Island in Kagoshima Prefecture and 45 meters per second on Yaku Island also in Kagoshima Prefecture."""

Winds picking up here in Kumamoto ( Kyuhsu ) at 2:00 p.m. Going to be a hairy evening . Very unusual to get hit with such a powerful typhoon this early in the season . Catch you all on the other side .

Hang tight, friend. I've seen what a Supertyphoon can do on Guam, and it ain't pleasant. Best wishes, and bring the tikis inside.

We were spared ! The phoon suddenly turned right at Miyazaki and is now heading toward Honshu . All we got was a little peripheral wind and some rain . Lucked out !
