    Yah, was me. Wind is indeed picking up now. I might actually go out again and see if I can film some trees and roofs flying around.

    The scaffolding on the construction site next door does not sound at all happy and the pressure is so low in the lift lobby I now have to use both hands to open the front door. Weird.

    I remember a local colleague told me there was once a typhoon everybody thought was over but than made somewhat of a U-turn and hammered the city real good. Anybody can confirm that story and how likely is that Usagi could stay a T8 longer than just until early tomorrow morning, e.g. by moving out to the sea and gaining strength again?

    That was not a tree, just a very large flowerpot

    The tree (or very very very large flowerpot!) has been cleared and road is passable again!

    I believe that was Typhoon Ellen, from '83(?).

    I grew up on the south coast of the UK (which is by no means its windiest area) where the sort of windspeeds quoted were reasonably frequent events, and wouldn't generally stop people going about their business. When the gusts get above about 110km/h then it starts to be come a bit more unusual.
    Eh? I stated where I quoted from.

    I guess the typhoon has blown away your attribution before the post reaches my computer?
