Who Is Jebi?

September 7, 2018

Jebi, the strongest typhoon to hit Japan in twenty-five years, came crashing down on the country this week, lashing the coast and leaving more than a thousand people injured.

How devastating was Jebi? The typhoon hit at 130 miles per hour, pushing an oil tanker in the sea straight into a critical bridge. More than three million people went without power as Jebi raged through various cities. The typhoon came after a tough summer of landslides and floods in different parts of the country, and it emphasized the importance of listening to advice from authorities to evacuate dangerous areas.
