    Incredible imagery – have you had a typhoon recently? Are they like our hurricanes?

    • AshiAkira says:

      Yes, typhoons are like hurricanes. I think they are the same sort of storm, but seems to me typhoons that hit us are always smaller in scale than those hit your country as hurricanes. The recent hurricane Sandy, for example. was much bigger than entire Japan, which is about the the same size as California. We had one about a couple of months ago. It left a number of deaths and caused damage to lots of houses.

    Thanks for educating a naive Vermonter… this last hurricane devastated New York, but the one last year, hurricane Irene, wiped a large part of Vermont right off the map. There were entire towns washed away – many, in fact, are still rebuilding even today. These storms seem to be getting more fierce each year – makes me think global warming is the cause.
